Before a packed house at the Babcock Theater in the picturesque city of Billings, Montana, Christopher Hitchens, famed atheist and author of God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, debates Larry Taunton, executive director at Fixed Point Foundation.
Curious to many is the fact that Hitchens and Taunton - while categorically disagreeing on this debate's central question, are friends. They have debated one another privately on numerous occasions. This is their first public encounter. The two men go head-to-head on a question with profound implications - a question ultimately relevant to everyone.
Through lively and passionate dialogue, God or No God? provides an excellent opportunity for people of all persuasions to engage with the ideas that are vying for influence in our culture.

Christopher Eric Hitchens (born April 13, 1949) is an English-American author, journalist, literary critic, and apologist for atheism. He has been a columnist at Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, World Affairs, The Nation, Slate, Free Inquiry, and a variety of other media outlets. He currently lives in Washington, D.C.
Hitchens is a political observer, polemicist and self styled political radicalist whose books - the latest being God Is Not Great - have made him a staple of talk shows and lecture circuits. In 2009 Hitchens was listed by Forbes magazine as one of the "25 most influential liberals in U.S. media." The same article noted, though, that he would "likely be aghast to find himself on this list".
