Which god is it they (Dawkins and Hitchens) go to meet, exactly?
I presume you mean your God, not theirs.
If I was Islamic I could use the same 'argument' to debunk these guys, yet presumably as Christians you would think I was wrong. Just exchange the word 'Bible' for 'Koran' and see the flaw in your argument.
And for the record; a beautiful metaphor does not equal truth.
