More on Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens seems to be in very big health trouble.  He is not a complete wipe-out, despite his crazed support for recent US wars.

But, unless it’s very late and very surprising, he isn’t going to recant his great and obvious mistake.

Dig it:

“The pattern and origin of all dictatorship is the surrender of reason to absolutism and the abandonment of critical, objective inquiry.”

That’s what CH says to atheists, whom he seems to be grooming as his legacy.  One trusts that CH also remembers a bit about levels of abstraction and logic.  Does CH still apply what he claims to be incontrovertible about God to human affairs?

If so, he still has some ‘splainin’ to do.

  1. You made an upper-case “God” of what is quite clearly a common noun , like eczema or fidelity. Having switched over to atheism a long, long time ago, I find it strange to see the god or gods concept rendered so mightily – yet this is mere late opinion, because for a long time to me it looked strange the other way.
    Hitchens’s apostasy on the war issue illustrates the folly of being a pundit, just as everywhere else in the mighty left pantheon, there are stupid opinions from otherwise gifted thinkers. Social reality, in other words, is a mess – which is why I like commenting, rather than pretending to have some oracular monasticism to lecture the world with.
