And even if religious people aren't swayed by their argumentation, some of them may well become more understanding of atheists, after hearing those four speakers present their argumentation.

I could be wrong - but that's what I think.

If religious people think they understand atheists better after hearing the four horsemen speak, THAT IS THE FUCKING PROBLEM.
