Pretty dull hatchet, that. Drinking Beverage

Hitchens would have just rolled his eyes and kept on being a badass. Nothing to see here. People attacking people who can't defend themselves after having died, chickenshit debate techniques and poor writing full of bland bitterness for the disagreement of what they think.

Attacking dead people is like sticking you tongue out in front of the blind.

No Gods Or Kings. Only Man.

Of course it did. God made him smoke and drink... duh. Ohmy

RE: Hatchet job on Hitchens
This reminds me of a book I noticed at Amazon a few days ago: The Greatest Hoax on Earth, which of course is a rebuttal against Dawkins' book. (Also make sure to check out his other book Refuting Evolution and read the user comments)

I'm quite sure people do things like this to try to raise themselves to the target author's level of intelligence and fame. Anyone who searches for the original book will likely see this book listed in the suggestions. Like if I were to author Pale Blue Speck under the pseudonym Charles Sagan, I'm pretty sure I would get thousands of views.
