Ricky Gervais and Stephen Colbert Debate Religion

Getting deep on late night TV

Things got a little deep between two comics on Colbert last night as Ricky Gervais and the host got into a debate on the existence of God.

Colbert hit Gervais with some tough questions like “Why does the universe exist at all?” and “Why is their nothing instead of something?” to which Gervais had some great answers. Science, the universe, the belief in one god over another, and a few things in between were discussed in the entertaining exchange.

It’s nice to see a heady exchange of ideas every once in while on late night. See it for yourself below.
