Today is the second anniversary of the passing of Christopher Hitchens.
Some journalists will never walk in his shoes. There are too many hacks at work. Others still consider a lack of belief in their god to be a religion. At least Faux News even has a Christmas gift for us Atheists from none other than the finely tuned and objectively moral William Lane Craig and his 5 reasons why God exists. If only there was somebody to save us from those angry Atheists, especially from those Jewish Atheists with cool license plates.
Those license plates are not that easy to get…..
Poland rules to keep an idol of dead Jesus hanging in the court room. His agent on this planet has become Time Magazine Person of the Year, beating Bashar Assad into fourth place. He has given orders (the Pope, not the dictator) to setup a commission to deal with a litany of human rights abuses against defenceless children carried out over decades around the world. I heard a Catholic say recently that his second car is a sign of his fight against poverty because it is really old.
British court decides Scientology is a religion.
25 Top Science stories of the year. We are all just a collection of microbes………
In his new book Michael Shermer asks Is God Dying?
Failed psychic predictions of the year.
The Happy Gilmores are Atheists and raise their family of seven as Freethinkers.
Christians are no longer the majority in New Zealand……guess which group is.
Segregation and Censorship must not be tolerated on Campus. I could hear Hitchens voice when I read it…..you know that way he had of sounding like he was just speaking to you? Keep thinking dangerous ideas.
"The only position that leaves me with no cognitive dissonance is atheism. It is not a creed. Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more." Hitchens.
Be very entertaining if Sarah Palin would agree to a formal debate against David Silverman: The topic should be "Christmas and the Constitution".
