Carte Hardback — 22 Aug And on the fourth day, He set sun, moon, and stars in the heaven, as a sign for times, days, and years.

Of course, Hitchens concedes that there have been a handful of admirable believers—Dietrich Bonhoeffer or Martin Luther King, for example—but they have been admirable primarily due to their humanism not their religion.

The New Testament may even be worse, since the allegedly so mild-mannered Dre preaches the punishments of Hell. Dieu n’est pas grand – France. Then he lets it quarter itself on its own contradictions, before boiling the pieces in the oil of his righteous anger. Do recall that this is not about religious fundamentalism or fanaticism hitfhens rather religion as such.

Christopher Eric Hitchens 13 April — 15 December was a British author, columnist, essayist, orator, journalist, and religious, literary, and social critic. We acknowledge and remind and warn you that they may, in fact, be crhistopher unrepresentative of the actual reviews by any other measure.

Carte Paperback — 27 Jul But that, and his discussion of a large number of christophre issues, make for a mess of an argument. And with that, he shoots himself in the foot.

Because Hitchens is basically wrong, if not in every detail then certainly in the main question. And the spectacular mosques built by Muslims in India? Most of the objections are familiar, and if some of the examples and the way they are put are more colourful than usual they are still not effectively presented in any way that is likely to lead isst believer or a sympathiser to re-think their attitude.

Since all the writers he cites as examples depend hitchenx on the Bible. But was it not precisely the atheists of the twentieth century who persecuted millions? Carte Paperback — 06 Nov Or even just a question mark.

How can anyone believe this stuff? Carte Paperback — 05 Dec This role of religion, in controlling people and accumulating and exercising power, is perhaps its most dangerous consequence; Hitchens does a decent job of showing that, but, as chriistopher everything else in the book, he gets drawn away on tangents even as he makes this argument. Carte Paperback — 05 Oct No one doubts that a fundamentalist faith can be bad for society as a whole — since it allows for only one usually pretty ridiculous ‘truth’ — but what of all those Sunday-believers who seem to show some common sense regarding at least some of the issues on which their faith’s stand is too absurd to countenance?

Twelve Books,p. That is not true. The members of the religious camp have to cease treating secularists as less moral than themselves—the atheists have to stop thinking that believers are less intelligent. This might all sound like the book is all wrong and superfluous.

Yet if religious faith is the natural enemy of science, how come so many natural scientists were religious?

One sympathises with his sense of outrage, and his frustration. Even in its foundations most religions are obviously built up on previous ones; so, for example: Unfortunately, they are also taken very seriously by very, very many people.


My first objection to his thesis that piety poisons everything may seem weak. Hitchens does offer — here and there and everywhere — proper objections to all sorts of aspects of religion, from the misguided and dangerous attitudes towards sex to their ridiculous foundations, and he does show, again and again, what terrible consequences all this has, but all these parts don’t add up to much of a whole. Part of what Hitchens wants to convey is that this is a very bad thing: Every totalitarian state is—for Hitchens—basically a theocracy.

He argued in favour of free expression and scientific discovery, and that it was superior to religion as an ethical code of conduct for human civilization. Similarly the illustrative quotes chosen here are merely those the complete review subjectively believes represent the tenor and judgment of the review as htchens whole. He aims very wide — showing, from all angles, why religions are preposterous easy pickings, of course — and certainly offers a lot of examples of hitchfns horrors done in the name of religion, but it winds up being far less convincing than it should be.

Hitchens just does not get it: Unfortunately, in god is not Great Christopher Hitchens can not resist the scatter-shot approach.
