Hitchens Quote

Religion comes from the period of human prehistory where nobody—not even the mighty Democritus who concluded that all matter was made from atoms—had the smallest idea what was going on. It comes from the bawling and fearful infancy of our species, and is a babyish attempt to meet our inescapable demand for knowledge (as well as for comfort, reassurance, and other infantile needs). Today the least educated of my children knows much more about the natural order than any of the founders of religion.

―God Is Not Great by Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011)

    I don’t get AlbertMohler. Everybody dies, believer and non-believer alike. The tragedy is that Hitch died before he could say everything he needed to say.

    Sometimes I wonder if @AlmightGod believes in Himself.
