Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

Christopher Hitchens was one of the great minds of our time. I feel sorry for anyone on the opposite end of an argument with him. This video is a collection of some of his finer moments. He will certainly be missed.

  1. Sorry Ed, but I felt like this one was justified.

  2. No need to apologize, you just beat me to it. I was going to go with the headline “Christopher’s in Heaven Now.”

  3. If Christopher Hitchens was one of the great minds in living history, the video on this page does nothing to support that claim. His case against religion is weak, unscientific, and uninformed. The video shows him arguing or debating with personalities who are known to lack intellectual skills and are devoid of critical thinking. How did Hitchens stand up to scientists and historians who knew what they were talking about? I won’t miss these discussions at all. But I would like to offer condolences to his family and friends.

    • Care to explain what you mean? Weak, scientific and uninformed? Really? I readily concede the point that the people he’s arguing against lack intellectual skills and are devoid of critical thinking. But then again, you can’t really defend religion in an intellectually rigorous way. If you care to make a scientific case for religion, by all means, be my guest.

  4. We got our first troll… Hooray!!!
