"Does The Christian God Exist" Debate

Below is a nice debate at  St. John's Catholic Newman Center at the University of Illinois. They do some very nice work, and are especially known for their excellent program of theology, especially having classes in Catholic thought for credit at the University (we are working toward this here at St. Mary's). They are also known for their large Catholic dorm, Newman Hall, which houses hundreds of students in the heart of campus (another project we are working toward here at St. Mary's).  They are generally regarded as one of the best campus ministries in the country, along with St. Lawrence at The University of Kansas as well as us here at St. Mary's.

Here is the description of the debate:
A Debate between Dinesh D'Souza and John W. Loftus, 2/9/10. Mr. D'Souza is the author of "What's So Great About Christianity?" and answered in the affirmative; Mr. Loftus, author of "Why I Became an Atheist", answered in the negative.
The video below is part I:

The rest of the debate can be found here.
