“Hitchens’ “entity” remarks to be a subtle reference to the late Professor Antony Flew, who became a deist six years ago after championing atheism for most of his life.”

Deist - well, isn’t that special. Not. Deism is agnosticism lite.

I can’t help but feel sorry for people like Hitchens who have no hope (even if he doesn’t view it that way). I’ve often heard Hell described as the total absence of God. So CH’s been living his life in Hell already, for a long time.

Why do such supposedly “enlightened, intellectual” people rail so vehemently against even the possibility of a Higher Power???

Pride and vanity. Hitchens has always been too brilliant for his own good. It’s a shame, he could have been a great force for good. He’s one of the great writers of our time.

I will miss him. But I’ll respect his wishes and reserve my prayers for the innocent. He’ll have his answers soon enough.
