Turek v. Hitchens

Does god exist? Christopher Hitchens and Frank Turek debate the question in this video.

As of this writing I haven't watched the entire thing, but I do note that the moderator deployed one of my favorite pet peeves when he described Hitchens as the author of "more than ten" books. That's "more than ten" as in, say, eleven? Twelve? One hundred and twelve? Three thousand two hundred and sixteen? It seems a small thing to ask that a definite count be given for something so countable. On the other hand, if the exact number of books that Christopher Hitchens has written is an unimportant detail -- I am willing to entertain this possibility -- why give a number at all? Why not just say he is the author of "many" or "lots" or "quite a few" or "several" or "buttloads" of books? Sheesh.
