Do you think that they should do one based on philosophy?
Like for example:
David Hume vs William Lane Craig
or
Fredrich Nietzsche vs David Oderberg
or
Immanuel Kant vs Socialpinko(lol)

Something similar to this :)

Why have you put good philosophers up against random B-rank contemporary philosophers/theologians? I mean, Kant v Hume, yes, or Nietzsche v Aquinas, but Hume v Craig? Why? It simply wouldn't be that interesting...

Now, Singer v Oderberg would be good, or Epicurus v Cicero.

Hume vs. Kant for sure. I saw one recently with Snoop Dogg (or Lion?) btw.

No they don't, not always. They occasionally do the same time period. For example, they've done Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Lady Gaga, etc.

No they don't.

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

No they don't.

In fact, I'd say they've done more of people at the same time than people not at all (Mercury v sinatra, Jobs v Gates, Lennon v O'Reilly, Mr T v Mr Rogers, etc.)
