ORLANDO, Fla.–(Business Wire)– More than 6000 people are registered to attend this evening`s debate between Christopher Hitchens, atheist author, and Dinesh D`Souza, religious apologist. The event, starting at 7pm this evening, will be the largest debate either proponent has ever taken part in. The UCF Arena is already sold out, and overflow seating is being added to accommodate additional walk-in traffic.
As this will not be the first debate Hitchens and D`Souza have had, they will both have to be at the top of their game to keep up. Previous debates include “Is Christianity the Problem?” at King`s College and “God on Trial” at the University of Colorado. Both debates provoked intense discussion, not only during the debates, but for some time afterward.
