I just finished re-reading “god Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything” I am firmly of the opinion that had he written on just about any other subject no one would care too much. He presents just enough fact to sound authoritative, but skews more than enough to bolster his flawed preconception.
I invite you to take a long read of
“Christopher Hitchens: My Response to god is not Great” by Rev. Dr. Mark D. Roberts Copyright © 2007, 2011 by Mark D. Roberts and Patheos.com
Mr. Roberts does a fine job of detailing just a small portion of the erroneous material in Hithchens’ book and will be well worth your time.
