And for my money...THAT, my friend, is a sign of Evolution in the year 2012!

I suck at memory, names and what not. Hitch remembered EVERYTHING.

Many of you have no doubt already seen this, but some here may have not.
Enjoy this incredibly powerful talk by THE Thinking Atheist, Seth.




It's all in your head, because there is no other place it could be.

I would throw in my vote for Penn Gillette. Intelligent. Bombastic. Humourous. Maybe not as well read but that would come with time. He has a history of pissing off his peers so there is a bit of fearlessness in there as well. Just my .02.

Keep living your life. It's the only one you have.

Yes, but his brother is a Christian.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

That was the beauty of Hitchens. How fast he was, how blunt he was, and I don't think we'll see that again. Sure people can be like Hitchens, but no one can truly have his style, mannerisms, etc. I hope we do get a new Hitchens, but for now, we'll just have to wait.

RE: Who is our next Hitchens ?
The best think about Hitchens for me is that he had passion.
I spend an hour yesterday wantching U-Tube "Hitch slaps".
I laughed my ass off at his retorts. All were from the hip and he never missed.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.

Douglas Murray, unquestionably. He is an atheist ("Mohammed made me an atheist"), hard on Islam, is pro-gay marriage, pro- Iraq War, and very much for free speech. He is an Oxford-educated historian and author.

Debating alongside Ayaan Hirsi Ali against Islam:
