Is JUST around the corner. I'm wondering for those of you who are going to have a shot of JWB... or those of you who will have to settle for the gas station bought single shot of tequila rose, lol...what are your favorite videos/quotes etc... the best of the best... of Hitchens...
Hitchens never stopped getting better. Even up to his death.
Nah, not at all - it is a respect - he was a brilliant debater, he will be remembered, like any great orator - does not put him into any class of 'revered'.
I just renewed the Hitchday event here on TA for next year.
For those who would like to RSVP - http://www.thinkatheist.com/events/christopher-hitchens-day-2
That which can be asserted without evidence can be equally dismissed without evidence. Hitchens or Sagan? Have a good Google on that one.
BTW, for those of you who think of the idea of 'Hitchday' as a cult, I would just like to point out that there are those of us who have been tipping back a glass of scotch on Robert Burns day for a couple centuries now without ever conceiving of that drunkard and fornicator as a saint, let alone a deity. :D
We don't celebrate just one man, as religion does. There are other tributes here at TA for other heroes. Thanks for this one!
I think I'd like to quote... The entirety of "God is Not Great". I just don't have room. :D
I'll still raise my pipe, and I may make a special on this coming 2014 edition, and buy myself a nice bottle of scotch.
