Christopher Hitchens Is Not Great

Yesterday, I saw something very sad: a lady, who looked reasonably intelligent, reading a book entitled 'God is Not Great' by Christopher Hitchens.
Hitchens is a writer who has been proved wrong on just about everything he has ever written.
Here, for instance, was his pre-invasion prediction about Iraq::
"This will be no war -- there will be a fairly brief and ruthless military intervention.... The president will give an order. [The attack] will be rapid, accurate and dazzling.... It will be greeted by the majority of the Iraqi people as an emancipation. And I say, bring it on."

So for anyone who still doubts the existence of the Almighty, here's the incontrovertible proof that God does indeed exist.

Christopher Hitchens thinks he doesn't.

Really now. Do you people still denigrate George Orwell for his "betrayal" as well?

Forget that sexist cliche about women. It's scorned Leftists you ought to worry about.

I just read your comment and although I do agree that some of what Mr Hutchins is saying is not perfect or close to the mark, I can say this, don't ever assume you know anything about it until you have read it!

the fact that you feel the title is enough for you to read to feel you understand the content.....don't judge a book by it cover

I see you believe in the some that too is just a book! Mr Hitchens is talking about ALL gods not just yours
