Charles, what you can’t tell what we “are” debating. :^]
It was about a poll offered by the New Humanist - Are Dawkins and Hitchens good for Humanism.
Here is a story about it and other surveys by the New Humanist (the Dawkins, Hitchens poll is discussed below the Harris one) - http://newhumanist.org.uk/1613
Are Dawkins and Hitchens good for Humanism was sort of the topic—are they unnecessarily polarizing the debate or causing a stereotype of the ‘humanist’ position which will result in a pendulum swing of opinion in resistance to their rhetoric.
