god is not Great

15 08 09 - 01:09

I just finished listening to the audio book "God is not Great" by Christopher Hitchens. If you've never seen him before, Hitchens is a very interesting character. He's a British/American journalist that often seems to have to much to drink, but he's very insightful. Christopher reads the book for the audio book, which is sort of a downer, as he is a fairly mono-tone speaker (I wouldn't do any better). He is often quite aggressive in this book on attacking all forms of religion, regardless of creed. Even Mother Theresa is a target for Christopher. Although I find Christoper at times too aggressive, I really enjoyed listening to this book. He brings up many excellent points on how religion has negative impacts on the world. He also continuously quotes the christian bible to show inconsistencies within the bible. Christopher surely has an excellent grasp of world religion. His anti-religion arguments are more from a Social context and different then those of Dawkins who mainly comes from Scientific reasoning. I highly suggest checking this book out, its definitely worth reading.

this looks like the other side of the religious coin.What did they contribute to the world ? religion except an enlightened minority,What do atheists contribute the little and growing numbers? no religion,except an enlightened minority.Goes to say exactly how pathetic this hoolah is.Cut it out and focus on more important things.Ask your liberal semi-atheist president to stop killing ur own troops in Iraq and tell your white brothers everywhere to fess up with what they put the whole world through .Take a hike and do something useful for once.
