Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I’m not even an atheist so much as I am an antitheist; I not only maintain that all religions are versions of the same untruth, but I hold that the influence of churches, and the effect of religious belief, is positively harmful.”

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I think being an atheist is something you are, not something you do.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “I suppose that one reason I have always detested religion is its sly tendency to insinuate the idea that the universe is designed with ‘you’ in mind or, even worse, that there is a divine plan into which one fits whether one knows it or not. This kind of modesty is too arrogant for me.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “The discovery there is no god is a great relief, because if there were, it would be like living in a celestial North Korea if there was one. You would never be able to escape.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “What do you most value in your friends? Their continued existence.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “Terrorism is the tactic of demanding the impossible, and demanding it at gunpoint.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “Religion fosters servility and solipsism.”

Christopher Hitchens Quote: “One of the great questions of philosophy is, do we innately have morality, or do we get it from celestial dictation? A study of the Ten Commandments is a very good way of getting into and resolving that issue.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “Nonintervention does not mean that nothing happens. It means that something else happens.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “If I’m in a political argument, I think I can, with reasonable accuracy and without boasting, put the other person’s side of the case at least as well as they could. One has to be able to say that in any well-conducted argument.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “Beautiful sentences pop into my head. Beautiful sentences that aren’t always absolutely accurate. Then, I have to choose between the beautiful sentence and being absolutely accurate. It can be a difficult choice.”
Christopher Hitchens Quote: “To reflect upon the event horizon is a great deal more awe-inspiring than a burning bush or a wooden statue that weeps or pees or bleeds.”
