Presentation on Christopher Hitchens
Hey there, folks!

Turns out I have to give a presentation on Christopher Hitchens in my religion class next monday. It's supposed to be 15 minutes long.

If anyone can give me sources that sum up his core views and arguments or something similar, that'd be great. Thanks in advance. Smile

RE: Presentation on Christopher Hitchens
He was fantastic on morality and mortality. I'd read one of his books if you have time on it, or perhaps watch some of his debates on morality.

His presentation of morality as the common human being happening to be more moral than the god of the bible is always a great debate. I don't know if I'd say his "core" arguments were any few, he was a fantastic speaker overall, was fantastic on many subjects and very intelligent.

Highly recommend reading "god is not Great"

Yeah, I can't think of anything " signature" off of the top of my head...

Easy.

Common thread to everything he wrote ...

Anti totalitarian


He was a pupil of Orwell.

(I reckon cos his middle name was Eric)

I held my presentation yesterday and it went quite well. As expected, neither my teacher, nor my classmates have ever heard of apologists, theists debating non-believers and Creationism. It simply ain't an issue over here 'cause religion is a private thing. Yes

My religion teacher was pleasantly surprised by the alternative viewpoint of Mr. Hitchens and said that she liked my presentation a lot. Hooray!

My penpals in germany have much said the same thing. When they told me that, I was shocked. Over here I think people tend to wear it on their sleeve more than they should.
