Recently the “Festival of Dangerous Ideas” was held in Sydney featuring, among others, Peter Hitchens (brother of the late atheist journal Christopher Hitchens).
Here is what Peter Hitchens is his dangerous idea:
The most dangerous idea and philosophy in human history remains the belief that Jesus Christ was the son of God and rose from the dead, and that is the most dangerous idea you will ever encounter.
Why is it dangerous?
Because it alters the whole of human behaviour and all of our responsibilities, it turns the Universe from meaningless chaos into a designed place where there is justice, where there is hope and therefore we all have a duty to discover the nature of that justice and work towards that hope. It alters us all. If you reject it, it alters us all as well, it is incredibly dangerous, that’s why so many people turn against it.
