Hitchens' best work by far,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything (Kindle Edition)
I keep re-reading this. Hitchens' best work by far. If you are a devout Roman Catholic, ardent Anglican, or even a nutjob Evangelical, best to avoid this book. Its well laid out explanations with evident truth will blow you into terminal hypertension.
Two thought to hold that may challenge your perception of the god people talk about. If he created mankind in his own image, and told them to do the right thing, why did he later swoop down with great vengeance to slay multitudes in an irrational frenzy?
If prayer really works, then why in all the history of medicine has no amputee ever regrown a limb? It can't be for lack of ardent and devout prayer. Don't say it's god's will. It can't be his will to create us with two arms and legs then agree that a few less will do after all.
