DH, I unfortunately am technologically primitive, so I can't view the videos you posted. Would it be possible for you to say on what basis these intellectuals would have sharp disagreements with Hitchens? I'm making the assumption that theirs is nothing close to a "literal" view of the Bible, and that their theology is non-traditional. Can you point to specific points where they diverge from Hitchens? It would also be very helpful to know what any of them might have said about Hitchens' book. Perhaps the book is merely not relevant for them, just as their ideas might not be relevant for Hitchens.
