I've placed this in the links to the left, but Douglas Wilson and atheist Christopher Hitchens are debating Christianity and religion on Christianity Today. Wilson is the author of Letter from a Christian Citizen and Hitchens recently wrote God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. So far Wilson has handled his argument quite well, and hopefully Hitchens will come back with some answers to his questions to keep the debate going.

Seems like they were debating whether Christianity has had a positive impact in the world.

Overall I'd say it has. It was the Christian West that gave us the scientific revolution, the industrial revolution and modern technology, women's rights, and re-introduced democracy.

Christendom's vices are those common to all cultures, but some of it's achievements are unique.

Yes, they are debating if Christianity has had a positive effect on the world, but are beginning to get into the validity of Christianity itself.
