Christopher Hitchens, we will miss you

We all knew it was coming, but somehow we had managed to ignore the cruelty of reality for a little while. For a moment there, it almost seemed as though Hitch had managed to defeat his cancer. Unfortunately, life is a cruel bitch that kills your heroes prematurely (it's true that Jack Daniels and Phillip Morris had done most of the damage, but still). Now, the world is a little duller, a little dumber, and ...

Christopher Hitchens gets waterboarded

Personally I'm not really a fan of Christopher Hitchens so I enjoyed this a little too much: Late last year, the writer, polemicist and fierce proponent of the US-led invasion of Iraq Christopher Hitchens attempted, in a piece for the online magazine Slate, to draw a distinction between what he called techniques of "extreme interrogation" and "outright torture". From this, his foes inferred that since it wa ...

Hitchens on Bill Maher

Now there's a man I would love to have a martini with. Christopher's razor sharp wit and insight make him a formidable debater, and a staunch defender of rationalism. In this video he talks about the recent allegations against the Catholic church, and why you can't turn your back on any religious folks! It's a pleasure to listen, as always. ...

Hitchens and Fry massacre their opposition

I read about how this interview was a complete massacre, but I didn't know how weak the Catholic arguments really were. Did they want to lose? My favorite part of the videos is when Stephen Fry lambastes the Church for washing away their culpability in condoning slavery. If they were supposed to be such moral saviors, why are they just as wrong as everyone else? Check out all the videos after the jump! ...

Hitchens on Australia’s Q&A

Here Hitchens and a panel of distinguished guests argue about the existence of God (what else!?). I actually found Waleed Aly probably the most eloquent and logical of all the speakers who disagreed with Hitchens (he plays Pink Floyd covers, so I like him already), and I have a lot of respect for his answers, even if I think he's terribly mistaken in his assumptions. Hey, not everyone is going to agree with ...

Why I love Hitchens

On this special mailbag podcast, someone asked Ryan and I what atheist, alive today, would we like to spend an evening with. I picked Hitchens, and after watching this video, I maintain my belief Christopher is an immensely talented raconteur who could keep you entertained for days. You just have to keep the booze and cigarettes flowing though.. ...
