United States alone approximately 22.8% of the population now identifies as atheist, up 6.7% from 2007. Furthermore, U.S. atheists now represent a larger portion of the population than Catholics, Protestants, and all other followers of non Christian faiths – such as Islam and Buddhism. This was not the case only a decade ago.

Yup, agreed Atheism as I stated is a religion, and they are gaining advocates and non believers in anything and nothingness.
That's their choice, as the Lord gives them choices and they are responsible for them. Its called tough love.

But wheres Chris Hitchens so called worshipped words of truth and wisdom

Evangelicals do not represent Jesus nor do they represent Christianity.

Rejecting the weirdness and zeal of out of control Evangelism is a sign of a true Christian. Jesus was not nationalistic, nor pro materialism, so how can Evangelicals represent Jesus.

Normal rational and/or spiritual people reject evangelicals, so don't use that as an excuse for rejecting Jesus.

Hence many atheists can be in tune with the Lord by rejecting churches, but out of tune if they throw out Jesus while throwing out the evangelicals.


Wheres Christ Hitchens words, so that we can discuss them.

Here’s some fine words by Christopher Hitchens. You’ll have to actually watch it and turn your speaker on to hear it.
I’m just posting short vids but, could post complete debates. They are worth the watch. You know where they are though.

Yup, as expected, pull out the fear card. Just another way of cramming their *bleep* down our throats. Who invented the "fire and brimstone" fallacy? Anyone know of someone that has died and come back to give a report on the living conditions there?

This just gets more and more humorous every day.
Religion, ANY religion is a joke.
When your body dies, it is dead and gone. That's it, all over, final curtain.
There is NO heaven and there is NO Hell.
Lights out.

Actually quite a few have died and come back to life.

But don't read their commentaries, as atheists get scared as HELLO, when reading these.

But we can be assured that Chris Hitchens isn't coming back. I agree. He is gone.

And no one can even say what ge ever said that was brilliant.

Stating nothing to people who believe in nothingness, encourages their nothingness, and makes them believe in nothingness even more.

Poor choice when evidence surrounds them, and personal experience could enforce the truths. But we must fight for their right to believe in nothingness..... even though they are their schools and media and more try to take away our freedoms to choose and believe and act in love

But NO proof to substantiate your claim beyond a reasonable doubt. If there was, we would have all heard about it a long time ago.
You got nothing.

Actually this topic is not about me but about Chris Hutchens, so if he was such a great guy, and great debater, and great mind, how come no one knows what he said.

How can we debate Chris unless some admirer of his, transcribes something he said, and then explains it or testifies to its truth etc.

Was he just totally smoke and mirrors, What truth did he say ?

Lets be objective, and talk about what Chris stated. Surely he wrote down something, surely one of his followers transcribed something of importance.

From his book. Do your own research from now one.......kay?

Chapter Four: A Note On Health, To Which Religion May Be Hazardous
Hitchens explains how some religions can be hostile to disease treatment. He writes that many Muslims saw the polio vaccine as a conspiracy, and thus allowed polio to spread.[12] He discusses the Catholic Church's response to the spread of HIV in Africa, telling people that condoms are ineffective, which, he argues, contributed to the death toll.[13] He notes with examples that some in both the Catholic and the Muslim communities believe irrationally that HIV and HPV are punishment for sexual sin—particularly homosexuality.[14] He describes religious leaders as "faith healers", and opines that they are hostile to medicine because it undermines their position of power.

It's still a myth

Comparative mythology is the comparison of myths from different cultures in an attempt to identify shared themes and characteristics.
Comparative mythology has served a variety of academic purposes. For example, scholars have used the relationships between different myths to trace the development of religions and cultures, to propose common origins for myths from different cultures, and to support various psychological theories.



Myth
a widely held but false belief or idea.
synonyms:
misconception,
fallacy,
mistaken belief,
false notion,
misbelief,
old wives' tale,
fairy story,
fairy tale,
fiction,
fantasy,
delusion,
figment of the imagination
