    The Catholic position says that the pope is infallible when he is 'speaking from the chair' about Catholic doctrine (i.e. about what Catholics are supposed to believe).

    I agree, the idea of infallibility is ludicrous.
    Bette Midler tweeted: At his rally, Trump complained about Parasite winning the Oscar. Iím more upset that a parasite won the White House.

    Objection, your honour!

    Are atheists a minority?
    I think they are a majority.
    And atheists can be very insulting towards believers.
    I would not be able to judge who can be more insulting.

    No the Pope is not infallible.
    Not even Catholics believe that.
    And I am sure not even the Pope believes that.

    Let's try to do it as he loved to do, claim and explain his views.

    So let's start with what Atheists say .... He learned absolutely nothing.

    He learned there is our GOD. PLEASE, this serious stuff since he died as a young man. Given the longevity of man, he could have lived much longer but his Cancer was why he was in the hospital. So confine it to the God that was around first so let's not ask about many GODS. We want to focus on ONE god.

    Some of you may not be aware he died in 2012.

    To help this start out correct, while he no longer talks, he has talked, and a lot.

    Suppose when he died, since he preached there is no such thing as GOD, his fate was to die, actually get to visit GOD, and GOD forgave him? OR, GOD told Christopher, since you do not believe in me, I also do not believe in you. Thus Christopher could have actually lived in the after life as opposed to learning had he believed, GOD could have included Chris in the Afterlife.

    Anyway, we have a still living excellent debater in his analytical skill to help us get to the bottom.

    TAke this journey hoping to persuade us of his view or choose Dinesh view of this matter.

    This will provide you with an excellent base of thinking. The video can perhaps give you life later, though not as man lives here on Earth, but something else glorious and new to you.

    I have chatted with many posters, some whom died even after they chatted to me on the internet.

    An Example is Don. Don is a very intelligent man who wrote recently and published a book speaking of him watching his wife die from disease. Ask me if you would be interested in any of his books.

    Don once was a flag rank Air force Officer. A heck of a nice man. I got to know him when Bill Clinton was president.

    So on to the show. Dinesh and Christopher debated on the stage at Notre Dame University in America.

    Enjoy it and let us all hear your side. If you think Christopher won, say so. If you think Dinesh won, let us know.

    Hitchens was a man who tragically put entirely too much faith in his own imaginative opinions, assumptions and speculations.

    I think that depends on where one lives. These forums are very US-centric and I would posit that the majority of the membership is Christian. It is definitely the case on the site where I am a moderator.

    And atheists can be very insulting towards believers.

    True, but I find them less likely to be such unless they are treated poorly, which seems to be the norm. However, I have found one or two atheists to be as objectionable and I have pointed it out in order to try and steer the debate away from a mere slanging match. There is one here that I will never engage owing to his belligerence.

    I would not be able to judge who can be more insulting.
    Although limited to my experience discussing this subject on various forums for about 12 years, I find most apologists to be very condescending, insulting and downright objectionable. Do not think for a moment I include you when I say this, for I find you quite a pleasant individual and I respect your opinions, however, there are about 5 or 6 members who frequent this sub forum that I refuse to engage owing to their lack of manners.

    Thank you very much for your friendy words!
    Yes, I can understand you!

    In German forums it may be a bit different. If I ever mention something like "name days" there, I get ridiculed as "over-pious".
    And as a "fanatical Catholic" who wants to burn others on a stake.

    Needless to say; I am neither over-pious nor do I want to burn anybody.
    And my interest in name days is not so much religious, but more on the cultural and historic side.
