4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 18 Jan 2008
This review is from: The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Non-Believer (Paperback)
I found this interesting in that it provides a potted history of atheistic philosophy which could be useful to anyone introduced to the subject more recently (perhaps by Dawkins or Dennet). Some of the historical material can be a little hard to read (especially on a packed train) but I found it fascinating to see how the arguments against religion have developed over time. Ayaan Hirsi Ali's story is truly inspiring and is a fitting conclusion to the book. Hitchens' introductions to each chapter are fitting, and often show just how important the individual writers ideas are to the him. Highly recommended.

Dear Deluded Bell-end. Tell the sky-fairy to come and get me instead; we can share a can of Stella together, both get angry and then I'll give him a good hiding.

Seemingly, my ripost to your religious nutjob rantings are not worthy of public consumption. Either way, NO ONE agrees with you.
