Watch an elderly man ramble to the point of forgetting his point while trying to defend his religion at all costs. Then listen to John Lennox.
What do you think about this kind of interaction?
As for me, I really enjoyed this exchange. When guys of their caliber get involved in a public debate, usually they are so formal and rigid that presentations are emotionless and the exchange gets boring. That’s what I enjoyed most about these two going at it. They didn’t really hold back. Peter Atkins, a brilliant chemist for sure, says exactly what’s on his mind, even when there’s nothing on it.
