I watched this last night. It was painful.
Nightline brought together four people — all of whom believe in the supernatural — to debate the existence of Satan.
Because apparently, that needs to be debated…
Here’s all you need to know about the event: Representing the “rational” side was… Deepak Chopra.
I’d say everybody lost.
It would’ve been nice to have atheist representation on the show, but I suppose Nightline wanted more of an argument than, “Satan?! Really? Are you people shitting me? You believe this?!”
But in case you feel like getting angry tonight, have fun watching this:
… philosopher Deepak Chopra and Bishop Carlton Pearson will face-off against Pastor Mark Driscoll of the Mars Hill Church and Annie Lobert, founder of the Christian ministry “Hookers for Jesus” about the existence of the Devil.
Pearson, by the way, is the pastor who was featured on This American Life as the pastor who stopped believing in Hell.
