TOPIC: Christopher Hitchens RIP

Christopher Hitchens RIP 16 Dec 2011 22:12 #110249

I am sad to announce the death of Christopher Hitchens.

Christopher was a well known British essayist, speaker and advocate against all forms of religion. He helped start the rise of anti religious activity in Britain and wrote several books on the iniquities of all religions.

As a debater, he was unequalled and never afraid to debate either the Christian right wing or the Islamist factions. His arguments were solid and sound. I am not a writer and others will write better obituaries than me but I did meet him once and he certainly impressed. He will be missed.

A great iconoclast and contrarian. He didn't just oppose religion. If there is a God after all I'm sure she'd be delighted to debate him.

A true hero for the non-believers among us.

A said day for the Free Thinkers in this world. Letters to a Young Contrarian is still one of my all time favorite books.

I totally agree with Bullwinkle, Hitchens was 100% AT.

Many of his arguments are mine. Let's hope somebody is brave enough to step in his shoes and does as well.
