If there were no God, there would be no atheist.

‘..but to stop treating religion with any respect whatsoever’

I wonder if Christopher Hitchens has the cajones to tell our black brothers and sisters that their Sunday services do not deserve any respect along with telling the Islamic community that Allah is a pipe dream??

Atheism is the most illogical,childish worldview. Only the deranged proclaim it.

No accounting for universal, invariant, abstract concepts.

No basis for ethical absolutes.

No basis for any absolutes.

That's Atheism. The opiate of the pseudo-intellectual.

Atheist credo:

1) There is no God

2) I hate Him.

Holy Atheists. That’s exactly what they are.

The fact that they are unable to take an objective look at history and compare the murders-per-year under communism (any communism, anywhere) and the murders-per-year under Christianity and see clearly that one is a distinct evil where the other isn’t... that fact shows they are blinded by their faith.

Leftism is about envy and bringing people down to the mediocre. Among many other things, leftists envy those with religion, especially members of affuent churches. They envy the religious for their extra level of confidence and motivation and their social standing. And they know religious people have a strong competitive advantage in war, both politically in fighting off envious hostility, and on the battlefield with real bullets. To win against their cultural betters, they must ridicule and corrupt their prey’s competitive advantages.

All atheists are crusaders; always have been. That's what I've never understood about them. They declare life and the universe meaningless and then embark on a fanatical crusade--and with joy and fanaticism in their hearts--to promote "social justice" and protect the superstitions of "indigenous peoples."

I doubt that anyone would listen to Hitchens if he didn’t have the english accent to lend an air of respectability to his bigoted polemic.

Guys like Hitchens and Dawkins are merely vicious little twerps who have found an outlet where they can get away with being vicious little twerps. In any other settings they would get their teeth knocked out.

Hitchens’s book is one of the most readable of the new atheist polemics. Nearly everything he writes is lively and engaging because he is a highly skilled writer and a clever advocate who often brings up points that are worth pondering seriously, along with others that are downright frivolous.

I have the same reaction to Hitchens. I do think he's both intelligent and entertaining. He's completely wrong about God, but so is most of the world. It's hard to blame a blind man for stumbling. We can pray for him.

If one wishes a real eye opener on atheism and skepticism in general read the literature of classical Greece and Rome; i.e. Epicurus and his school. The present day arguments were made in those times. This current crop has not uncovered any really new arguments. The similarities between the skepticism of the two civilizations are very interesting.
