Taking on possibly the greatest issue of our time - the malignant force of religion in the world - Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion through a close and learned reading of the major religious texts, citing numerous historical instances in which sexual repression and outrageous acts of violence have been committed in the name of God. He argues for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view of the universe, and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix.

i honestly think that Christopher Hitchens could have done a much better job in explaining himself in many questions asked. i hold the same non beliefs as he does, yet i feel that many of the answers he gave did not due his intelligence justice. maybe it was all due to the fact that he was debating al sharpton, clearly a fool.
