I have heard that Mr. Hitchens made peace with God towards the end of his life? Do not know all the details though. Please fill in the details. Thanks!
No, he didn’t. He made a statement that he no longer believed ‘that which does not kill you makes you stronger’.
He also said that any rumors of a deathbed confession would be false.
Now, deathbed confessions can and do occur, but it is my experience (end of life care with many atheists), that dying makes them more - not less - adamant about their atheism. It was true with my father, and my uncle, and my great uncle and my great aunt. One even cursed the idea of God as his last words. In fact, out of about a dozen atheists/agnostics, I only knew of one deathbed confession and that person had been ‘seeking’ for several months prior.
It is sad, for I weep every time a non-believer dies, but there was no evidence that Hitch had any indication of changing his mind.
