MY DEBATE WITH DR. HOPPNER-- Jersey Flight

In my debate with Dr. Hoppner I replied: 

Not all things are necessary. It is indeed necessary for me to open the door if I purpose to leave the debate, but it is in no way necessary for me to believe in God in order to open the door. In this way my friend, God is of very little value to my life. For in what way can he be said to be necessary to my opening the door? And surely this is only a small analogy to exemplify the fact, that even if he does exist, he has no value to my existence--- for "I" must open the door, "I" must go through it... if experience has taught me anything it has taught me that he who waits for God to open the door is a fool! It is perhaps the highest discovery to realize that the concept of God is in no way necessary to the life of man.
