    Let me begin this review by telling you that I m an atheist In fact, I m with Douglas Adams in calling myself a radical atheist , just to make sure that everyone gets the point Yes, really It s in my profile.So my opinion about this book really has nothing to do with my personal convictions Well, not my

    There s a debate I keep getting into about the difference between atheism and religious belief someone claims that atheism is just another faith, and I disagree This seems like a good place to summarize my objections.I would first like to draw a clear distinction between dogmatic and sceptical atheism If someone

    A wicked, witty condemnation of all things religious As a person of faith, I find that Hitchens often sounds like a blind man ridiculing the value of Rembrandt and Van Gogh But he is particularly fine on the noxious ways in which religion intersects with the most murderous forms of politics And of course as is always the c

    I read this months ago and never got around to the reviewSimply stated, Hitchens puts into words all the reasons I shy away from organized religion The prejudices, sexism, the overall foolishness At the same time, he seems oblivious to the fact that there are religious people out there doing great things feeding the hungry, clothing

    I m probably going to court some hateful comments by trying to write a review of this book, but I think Hitch would be proud that I am making the attempt.I have been reading Hitch s work for years, including his essays on mortality and atheism, so I knew the gist of his arguments against religion, but it was enlightening going through this entire book He synthesizes a tre

    This book is fundamentally flawed in argument, but can be enjoyable to read Christopher Hitchens, however, is an exceptionally witty writer, who often finds clever ways to express himself His writing is conversational, flowing, but sometimes elitist, arrogant, and pretentious His humor is evident throughout the book, but it is consistently divisive and adversarial.As an atheist, I

    Imagine if a basketball fan set out to discredit baseball and converts its adherents to his chosen sport He would note the rather dubious creation myth still celebrated in the sports Hall of Fame, the Black Sox scandal, the exclusion of African American players until the 1950s, frequent brawls between teams that literally clear the benches, and two most successful players of the last decade
