We just lost one of the best writers and most brilliant minds with the passing of Christopher Hitchens (age 62). He succumbed to cancer after a year and a half battle. He continued to write and share his thoughts on life and ultimately, death. Here’s a tribute from Vanity Fair. Here’s Christopher’s final piece: Trial of the Will
Here’s an amazing appearance he made at Google to discuss his book: God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything”
No matter how deeply religious you are, you must admit that Mr. Hitchens does present much food for thought. While the premise of philosophy is unsettling to all believers, it’s worth pondering. It will either make you more faithful or lead you to another truth and path in life. He was a gifted writer and a talented thinker. His entertaining, charming and provocative spirit is already missed.
