Hitch has been a huge influence to me any many other people. No one could ever replace him and the rational population took a big hit today.

A brilliant man, gone too soon. I don't know if he went up or went down, but either way it must have been a shock to this confirmed atheist.

After looking this guy up on Google I don't see why anyone should care.

The dude looks like one of those boring people with a stupid cause. I bet he put people to sleep droning on and on. Probably the Meade Skelton of atheist.

"evangelical atheist"? Isn't that a contradiction of terms?

No, its an adjective. The non-religious definition is: "marked by militant or crusading zeal".

You could be an evangelical Redskins fan if you wanted to....ok bad example.

Hitchens was a very intelligent person, it's no wonder you've never heard of him. Sorry you had to go to so much trouble to google his name, read a line or two about him and then post here with your insightful comment. I'm sure it was the most work you've done all day.


> One less evangelical atheist douchebag.

I'm sure Google described him as an "evangelical atheist". There's no such thing, but I'm sure you took the time to read some of his work before made that statement, right?


> Now if we can just get Richard Dawkins some
> cancer....

Yeah, the world needs a lot less scientists and rational thinking people. We'll just let God cure cancer and create computers for you to display your idiocy.

Hitchens in one of his funnier, insightful, passages.

On the subject of faith & religion:

"What we have here, and picked from no mean source, is a distillation of precisely what is twisted and immoral in the faith mentality.
Its essential fanaticism, its consideration of the human being as raw material. And its fantasy of purity.

Once you assume a creator and a plan, it makes us objects, in a cruel experiment, whereby we are created sick, and commanded to be well. I'll repeat that. Created sick, and then ordered to be well.

And over us, to supervise this, is installed a celestial dictatorship, a kind of divine North Korea. Exigent, I would say, more than exigent greedy for, uncritical praise, from dawn until dusk. And swift to punish the original sins with which it so tenderly gifted us in the very first place.

An eternal, unalterable, judge jury and executioner, against whom there could be, no appeal. And who wasn't finished with you, even when you died.
However! Let no one say there's no cure, salvation is offered, redemption, indeed, is promised, at the low price, of the surrender of your critical faculties."


RIP

I only recall hearing about this guy once before he died, and he never impressed me. He talks in circles, like a lot of the pseudo-intellects out there, and it's a reason for why the hipster crowd adored him.

Read his book "God Is Not Great". There is no circular logic in it at all.

Hitchens despised Bush. Watch the Hardball episode where he totally lambasted Bush, McCain and Sarah Palin.
He was neither totally left or right in his politics. He said what he thought of people, no matter who they were or how powerful.

He also had a great sense of humor. His debates and interviews were never boring.

3 horsemen left.

Hitchens was a typical socialist. Anti-American, anti-god, pseudo intellectual informed by foreign liberal politics. He was a total disgrace to our great country and forefathers.

Here is some classic Hitchens putting some dumbass named Mos Def in his rightful place.
I love it when he refers to him as Mr. Definitely.
