There are many problems with Jordan's behaviour as a debater. Among them are his tendency to raise his voice in an attempt to belittle his opponents. But his big problem is the one he's attempting to build his reputation upon. He's trying to be the atheist and the believer at the same time and then he tries to invent some highly intelligent nuanced explanation for how that is possible. It just isn't of course but his fans are patient with him enough that they will wait in expectation of him delivering a satisfactory explanation. It will 'never' come.


And so that makes their Jordan just a flash in the pan who will never become a Richard Dawkins or a Sam Harris or even a Christopher Hitchens. If anyone thinks otherwise then they are obliged to state just what Jordan has contributed to society.

I'll watch him again on a utube video but it will only be to see somebody like Sam Harris destroy him.

I saw him with all of those people and they were SO gentle with him.  My suspicious is that they recognize he brings a giant flock of new curious people to wherever he goes and they want a piece of that.
