One of the last things that Hitchens wrote.

As a hint: if you enclose the links with [vidoe]http:www.whatever the video is[/vidoe]

For example:  

Link


Then it appears on the page without us having to open a new Window/Tab..

(Of course you spell video correctly, but for reasons that will become apparent I had to misspell it)

I wasn't too keen on the man, but he was certainly erudite and expressed himself eloquently. As for his no compromise with religious views, well I agree 100% with that!

No doubt he's now at that never closing bar in heaven, imbibing Jonhy Walker Black Label, and in vehement discussion with St Augustine and of course St Peter, (who let him in!)

I was wrong! Apparently Hitchens is in hell not heaven! Here's the evidence:

As Mark Twain said the weather is better in heaven but the company is better in hell! (If the link doesn't work, please blame Farmer not me!)

No, it's clearly your fault.

Its a shame. He was a very intelligent man, who made significant contributions to the ongoing debate about belief.

I'd a lot more time for him than Dawkins.

Heck, Lexi, we couldn't even agree today is Friday! At least Dawkins has never claimed that "religion poisons everything", he merely claims it is a mistaken belief, - a delusion. A POV I agree with.

But of course your choice of "favourite atheist" is up to you, not me!

Certainly in the mist enveloped land of Christianity, I would prefer Rowan Williams to Joseph Ratzinger. Both are vague, but "Holy Joe" is less vague about what will happen to non-believers like me. Yes indeed, Lexi, hell is real!

Clear as mud, eh Lexi?

 I liked him because he was inordinately well read.
I didn't like his views, but I appreciated that he used a wealth of earlier works
