“The offer of certainty, the offer of complete security, the offer of an impermeable faith that can’t give way, is an offer of something not worth having; I want to live my life taking the risk all the time that I don’t know anything like enough yet; that I haven’t understood enough; that I can’t know enough; that I’m always hungrily operating on the margins of a potentially great harvest of future knowledge and wisdom, I wouldn’t have it any other way, and I’d urge you look at those of you who tell you, those people who tell you, at your age, that you’re dead until you believe as they do—what a terrible thing to be telling to children—and that you can only live by accepting an absolute authority. Don’t think of that as a gift, think of it as a poisoned chalice; push it aside, however tempting it is. Take the risk of thinking for yourself. Much more happiness, truth, beauty and wisdom will come to you that way. ”
– Christopher Hitchens

Hitchens never grew up, he only wanted to shock, sort of like a college freshmen.  In anycase he is rotting meat, does not exist anymore and will soon be forgotten.  I know believers who do think for themselves....you don't sound like you do.....just another carbon copy villiage atheist.

Christopher Hitchens put religion in its place, using wit and common sense to tackle religion.

And I noticed that here are many who hate wit and common sense, or cannot understand it.  Probably they do not like a mirror held up to them.
