Yes, I'd be interested in this debate too. Especially since I just read an essay in todays local rag about the nilistic eventuality of atheism.
Thanks!
Shalom!

Nihilist: someone who rejects all theories of morality or religious belief
anarchist: an advocate of anarchism

The Nihilist movement was an 1860s Russian cultural movement marked by the questioning of the validity of all forms of preconceived ideas and social norms. The Nihilists championed the independence of the individual and shocked the Russian establishment. Those ideas had a political impact, as they opposed servitude and demanded democratic reforms. ...
