Blusteel was able to come up with a rational defense for absolutely anything when he was around. I would name him for this title.

I'm a big fan of Philochristos. Just look at how he picks this woman's argument apart:

Lol...His so called valid syllogism is nothing of the sort. Its nothing but a display of freshman ignorance by someone who hasn' learned he meaning of modus ponens. Latin for to affirm through affirming. Affirmations are truths therefore the proper subject matter for his ignorant modus ponens deems it invalid. Whether the universe was created is not a valid topic for MP and neither is the existence of God. He is hack.

Hitchens was colorful and I'm sure I'd have enjoyed an after dinner chat and drink with him, but he was not particularly impressive when up against people who know their subject.

He was bamboozled in that clip because Lane Craig is no lightweight when it comes to logic, philosophy or debating - Hitchens resorted to waffle and rhetoric.

Here is a better example of true serious impressive debating, these guys show the utmost respect for each other, they listen carefully, they answer questions, they do not waffle or joke:

Those talking logical while speaking from the insides of the illusions of life, are those moving forward like they're walking on water. Sure. But walking forward down the lie is them better staggering backwards, walking like it's beer. Cheers to the logic that is the state of perception toasting its champagne that bubbles through their veins of thoughts, as dynamo of truth theyve now become.
