Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens is a British-American author and journalist. Hitchens believes the concept of a God or a supreme being is a totalitarian belief that destroys individual freedom, and that free expression and scientific discovery should replace religion as a means of teaching ethics and defining human civilization (similar to Sam Harris). He championed the word "anti-theist" which he explains as "someone who is relieved that there's no evidence for such an assertion" as a replacement for "atheist." Hitchens authored the work "God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything" which is alleged to be the the ultimate case against religion. Hitchens died of complications from esophageal cancer in December 2011. Due to his outspoken nature, he was considered to be amongst the horsemen of the New Atheists. Hitchens, like Harris, is also big on the moral argument and the problem of evil and his objections against theism are largely philosophical rather than scientific.
