          What a titan! Thousands of years of Christian scholars and arguments ALL demolished with contemptuous ease....over and over. How many tens (hundreds) of thousands of people did this man de-convert? And, Hitchens's lectures and debates will live on to enlighten new generations and to further erode the "mine-forged manacle" of religion.

            the last part of this video in which he answers "why bother"is in my opinion as good as it gets for a response against the harm of superstitious beliefs...

              You can tell the guy with the glasses went home that night & said to his wife “Christopher did it, he actually made me realise I’ve been believing in all this nonsense my whole life & what a waste it’s been. He knew more about Christianity than I do & I just can’t see how I’m going to possibly go forward in my life saying I believe in it all after he ripped every argument I had to bits & replaced it with indisputable evidence. I’m annoyed I didn’t shake his hand in thanks for putting me on the right path without Jesus.”

                    He never has a logical argument in all the videos I've seen him in. He is just a sad little man that keeps holding on to that thread of belief, in spite of his poor presentations, because it is a moneymaker for him and he knows he has a core of cultists that overlook the logical. Sad but true.

                            To be fair....I believe Hitchens would draw assessments from a highlight clip instead of watching entire debates is illogical (not saying it sways your opinion in any way just saying that Hitchens would instruct you to do so) GOD BLESS

                                          It’s amazing how much information he crams in a sentence or paragraph. I always have to re-watch Hitch, multiple times before I understand it completely.

Chaos? Nonsense just like any other religion(s)? Make believe? Thatʼs how. And that is why. Checkmate. Period.*

                                            *Life is like a fidget spinner where some people think itʼs interesting to know you move faster to the max and slower to the lowest because they just love the different patterns and movements just like as we love the happy and sad movies and songs.⸻Kyairey*

All means including you, me and others such like all existences, all spaces, all places, all purposes and all nonexistences. Most of us have used our brain to think about many different beautiful people even though our brain is ugly. Life is like a game of pretend for those who want to be deleted but afraid to die or suicide. Not what to believe or how to believe but what to know and how to know because knowledge is power. Power is everything in politics so itʼs nonsense if society is more powerful than authority which usually controlled by politicians. Logically life cannot stand by itself without mathematical existences like quantity, infinity and measurement because life is completely digital. God or Gods should say thereʼs God or Gods to people instead of people should say thereʼs God or Gods. Logically itʼs a child murder if we gave a childbirth after we knew a child will be killed by childdeath. Itʼs a child murder if we gave a childbirth after we knew a childdeath is sure because death is sure. Murder means if we knew a person will die for sure after we keep doing it but still doing it. Itʼs a murder if we knew a person will surely die after we keep doing it but still doing it. Murder means if we knew a creature will die for sure after we keep doing it but still doing it. Itʼs a murder if we knew a creature will surely die after we keep doing it but still doing it. All humans are all creatures. All animals are all creatures. All insects are all creatures. All bacterias are all creatures. All organisms are all creatures. Organism means a living thing. All organisms are all living things. All living things are all creatures. Living thing means a life form. All life forms are all creatures. Our mind is often free to be used freely depends on our situation and our limited knowledge known by us. Our imagination is limited as long as we still cannot make a phone that can delete all completely. Our knowledge is limited as long as we still unable to make a phone that can delete all completely. At least we know what we want even weʼll never get what we want.⸻Kyairey*

                                                  Running away from torturers, is running away from hell of war and religionism and it's primitivity by sadism is nothing but a tool to war and to totalitarianism, despotism, which are cults of clansadism.

What a superb vocalist and communicator and journalist! What an admirable leader of his cause! What a huge loss to humanity, realism and straight thinking.

It is like being in debt to absolutely everyone and everything and not knowing how you are going to financially survive until next pay day. Then, suddenly. A light is turned on and you see everything with such clarity that your debts are a thing of the past and cash flow no longer is a problem. That is how losing your religion feels and I posthumously thank Hitch for that and the likes of Sam Harris and Richard Dawkins. Keep up the good work gentlemen.

Hitchens ridicules people for believing in something despite there being no evidence of it? So what about his faith that humans can be good to each other despite the entirety of human history showing that we can't. Yes there are examples in history of people using God as an excuse to kill others, but Hitchens ignores all of the examples in history of people using God as a reason NOT to kill others.

                                                                                When we start relying on human reason alone to guide our moral behavior then we get Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and Pol Pot.

                                                                                Try to dispute this logic:
                                                                                Without God, Hitchens expects people behave with decency towards each other and control their destructive impulses because they are convinced they are building a better future. He expects people to have faith in that future despite there being no guarantee of it (with nuclear annihilation, global climate catastrophe, and asteroids all being quite plausible). Hitchens is therefore being incredibly naive. Currently the predictions of astrophysicists are that either the universe will spread out to nothingness or come slamming back together in a big crunch. For a person to believe in the value of creating children and creating a better future for mankind DESPITE those cataclysmic predictions requires just as much faith as a person who believes in God. Hitchens' atheism requires us to have faith that humans will someday create a technology powerful enough to alter the workings of energy and matter in order to preserve a universe suitable to sustain our children. If Hitchens was a rational atheist who believed in science, then he would have been forced to acknowledge the utter hopelessness of human survival in the universe. The natural conclusion of his beliefs must be that there is no guarantee of the future, therefore having children is without merit and humans should only engage in the impulses that give them the maximum gratification in the present moment. Of course he did have children and said that they are his only hope for immortality, which just proves that he is both ignorant of the true conclusions of his perspective and a fraud.

                                                                                We do need God because we do need a reason to be good to one another, especially when we we can't comprehend why. Science does not supply that reason compellingly enough to counteract the temptation to violence when we are under imminent threat. Science can only give us survival of the fittest. Religion gives us the inherent value of our neighbors, and Christianity specifically gives us the nobility of self-sacrifice in the face of mortal persecution.

Oh and it isn't the sole domain of the atheist, either. it is used in this manner by non-believers AND believers alike.
                                                                                  After all, you don't believe that the first man and woman on the earth emerged, fully formed from sticks of bamboo do you?

Moving forward under our own recognisance . Lots of people do that already.

I hope other as intelligent and brave will stand up and pick up were Hitchens had to stop. Because i'm not smart enough to finish his quest.
