Millions of Lives Touched by Christopher Hitchens - CHEERS!

------



Christopher Hitchens, a brilliant man and orator, has oesophageal cancer.  This is a YouTube tribute compilation made by those whose lives he has touched deeply. 


 
About Christopher Hitchens:
Identified as a champion of the "New Atheism" movement, Hitchens describes himself as an antitheist and a believer in the philosophical values of the Enlightenment. Hitchens says that a person "could be an atheist and wish that belief in god were correct," but that "an antitheist, a term I’m trying to get into circulation, is someone who is relieved that there’s no evidence for such an assertion."  He argues that the concept of 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.

Tears were in my eyes.  Cheers, Christopher!
