The above video was just posted recently on Sam’s website.  I just got done watching it and I need some help.  The interviewer made the error of stating that Sam and Francis Collins debated at one time, when in fact, it was Hitchens who had debated Collins.  Sam did say that he gave Collins “a tongue lashing” in a response to something Collins had written and that Collins hadn’t responded.  Where can I read the “tongue lashing” that Sam was speaking of?

Also, CONGRATS TO SAM!! He and his wife are expecting their first child this January. smile

I’d like to see it too.

Sam did note the fact of the debate you mentioned, that it was only in writing he had “tongue lashed the man, but had never met him.

The video was a good one, and is a good interview in that it reveals much of Sam’s thinking on a number of subjects.  Well worth the time to watch.

I found the tongue lashing.  It was Sam’s review of Francis Collins’ book.  Link is below if you are interested.
