Our Sam Harris / Dennis Prager atheism dialogue is attracting an unholy avalanche of attention on the internetz and has generated some exploding comment threads here on the site. The most robust is here, where Harris's supporters seem to outnumber Prager's by a hefty margin. One commenter also puts forward an argument similar to one in Michael Weiss's Jewish Jihad for Jesus article:

I think that it's undeniable that the framework for the Marxist political view even seems Christianized. A glorious revolution that redeems mankind and brings justice, peace, and equality? Redeams the fall of mankind? They might have been atheists, but the framework for their ideas, I believe in the least, is somewhat Christianized.

Change "Christianized" to "Judaized," and you've got one corollary of that article's argument. Michael, go ahead and correct me if I'm wrong.

So far, the verdict of the internet commentariat seems to be, as the Digg entry puts it, that "Atheist Sam Harris destroys conservative talk show host [Dennis Prager]" in their Jewcy debate.

If you disagree, let us hear about it.
