So in all, this isn’t really a Christopher Hitchens book – It’s a book of all the authors that are represented here, perhaps to pique one’s interest to go out and read all those authors works in their entirety, thus improving your understanding of many things, not just religion.

The writers and the writing truly are the cream of the crop. Get to Know Us. I recommend this book for open minds people. He freed the body from chains because he enchained the heart.

Paperbackpages. The ten pages of hitcyens from Albert Einstein were simply repetitive. Jesus demands faith, but not knowledge. There are a few prominent unbelievers who have cheistopher this pretty well: Almost every essay was so beautiful thought provoking and at even sometimes wondering Lucretius’ from BCEs.

It is time to withdraw our ‘respect’ from such fantastic claims, all of them aimed at the exertion of power over other humans in the real and material world.


Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book is so well written by a person who is or was one of the -undisputedly I presume- best minds of our times that it would equally appeal to a curios reader looking for an interesting summer read, that it would to a deeply inquisitive one well aware of the both sides’ arguments.
