Christopher Hitchens 1949-2011 - December 16th 2011, 11:18 PM

Have to admit there's a certain irony that I'm posting about this rather than any of our resident atheists, but such is life:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-16212418

I'm the first to admit that I disagreed vehemently with a lot of what he said, particularly about religion (on which I felt at times he completely lost the plot). However, having read his obituary I cannot fault his determination or his skill as a writer, and if nothing else he has challenged me to bolster my own opinions on a range of topics.


"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall." - Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom

However bleak things seem, however insurmountable the darkness appears, remember that you have worth and nothing can take that away.

Never heard of him before today. After reading this article, I think I'll do more research on him.


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

An irreplaceable, respected member of all modern atheist and secular movements, as well as a passionate and skilled writer and speaker.
He will be sorely missed by our community.
