Hitchens was controversial at times, But Hitchens was respected by his colleagues. Even Tony Blair respected him after their heated debate on religion in 2010.
Why are you even placing Hitchens and Mathis in the same category, I don't see a connection here other than Hitchens being controversial as well as Mathis. But IMO that's where the similarities end.
Hitchens is considered to have been highly intelligent and cunning.

<quoted text>So Deuteronomy 13 6-10 is not what your god ever wanted? He is supposedly ordering the murder of anyone, including your kids, if they try to sway you from your god.
Amazing you claim to know what god thinks. It is as if a man like you could have just invented this god.
Hold that thought when you see Him... You will see Him!
I do love how you guys twist things you've read, or take what evil bible.stupid pumps out...
Read it again, and see who He was talking to, AND WHY!
God is JUST, and He gave you Jesus to take the Punishment you keep screaming for!
You WILL get what you want...
I have Faith in that!

Fair enough
However there are plenty of bad verses in Joshua too.
Verses that advocate and indeed, glorify, killing.
What's happened here is that someone has ignored the bad and chosen the good.
In essence, demonstrating that good ethics come from within.
Killing... yes!
Killing People that sacrifice their children on bonfires to
other gods....
Much like the world does in abortion murder mills today!
Sacrificing Children to themselves for sex!
Whoa to this people... they will get what they deserve!

It could well be that Your ignorance is what is at stake here.
Faith= confident belief in the truth, value, or trustworthiness of a person,(idea), or thing;
This idea=(an opinion or belief) that Atheists adhere to(There is probably no God) is based on faith, not evidence or logic.
Moreover, your ignorance is further exemplified by stating that I believe in a nasty God.
My God is a God of love
You further demonstrate your ignorance by stating"If anyone could produce a nice God, it would certainly help if the folks who believed in a nasty one would convert to it, "
Anyone who could produce a God ,would be God.
We do not produce Gods,We were created by God.
So , Atheism is based on Faith , a faith that can not be proven
by logic and for which you can provide no evidence or cite any personal experience.
As far as behaving with kindness and decency , that is a topic that you should address to your fellow Atheists
AMEN!
God is Good!

You're completely missing the point.
Please try taking your nose out of your bible and clear your head of incense and angels.
I don't believe in your god - I don't believe in anyone else's gods either.
The point (which you failed to deal with) was the blatant hypocrisy of believers:
They cry foul at the number of deaths attributed to Stalin but see absolutely nothing wrong with the billions more attributed to their god.
Get it?
You fools fail to differentiate the difference between GOD and stalin. stalin was born into the human race.
He used his corrupt human nature to commit murder.
GOD,our creator , used his Holy Nature to judge those who he deemed not worthy of life because of their disobedience.
Disobedience to God has consecuences....
Let us look at the beliefs of one of the Apostles of your Faith,
Christopher Hitchens.
Although he did not believe in God , judgement or punishment, He believed that a SUPERIOR race of Beings used our planet as a dumping ground for those they judged were unfit to live in their world.
According to your Apostle , we are the descendants of those who were judged to be lunatics ,undesirable and unfit by a Superior race and as result ,were punished by being banished to Earth .
One has to wonder how he came by his beliefs?
He does not disagree with our punishment,implying that we deserved such.
Was his subconscious telling him something?
Obviously,something was telling him that there is a superior being
that will judge our actions.
Yet, he denied the existence of such a being or beings.
It would appear that,what his mind was telling him , was being contradicted by his subconscious.
Oh reality ,where can it be found?

Yes and Amen

Yes, the Bible says a lot of creepy things.
Yep, but the BEST, and ONLY thing you have to consider is,
John 3:16-20
3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only-begotten
Son, that whoever believeth in him, should not perish, but have
everlasting life.
3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the
world, but that the world through him may be saved.
3:18 He that believeth on him, is not condemned: but he that
believeth not, is condemned already, because he hath not
believed in the name of the only-begotten Son of God.
3:19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men have loved darkness rather than light, because
their deeds were evil.
3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither
cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

Come into the Light, or not...
It is the ONLY choice that means a hill of beans!

Along with highly intelligent and cunning ,he could also be considered irrational.
Hitchens did not believe in God ,punishment , heaven or hell.
On the other hand he believed that our descendants were sent to Earth by a Superior Race who had found them to be lunatics and unfit to live in their world.
As punishment they were banished to Earth , which he calls an insane asylum.
How did he arrive at those contradictory conclusions?
Was he insane or was his subconscious telling his mind that there is a Supreme being who will judged us for our actions and punish us accordingly?

Of course, believe ONLY the part of a book of myths that relieves you of responsibility for your actions.

Typical hypocritical Christian.

The days of believing that you can "put your evil deeds" on the back of an animal and kill it, thus ridding yourself of blame, are over.
It didn't work 2000 years ago and it doesn't work now.

You are still you, no matter how much you deny it.

I have noticed. When the issue of the irrational thinking of the
Alcoholic Hitchens was brought up , they said the same thing.
Attempted to discredit the writer,Miles Mathis,and refusing by all means to deal with the issue.
Hitchens own words convicted him and there was no way they could work around that issue other than by chicannery and any other deceptive means they could conjure up.
After all , it is Hitchens who admits that "he does his best writing ,when he is shitfaced"
ASdmitting to being shitfaced is much more than being drunk.
Then the fool , who claims we were not created by a Superior being ,states that he believes that " A Superior Race borught us to Earth and dumped us off here as punishment.
They had judged us and found us to be undesirable and unfit.
hhe further states that he has no evidence to support his beliefs
but that they can not be disproven
Fools are fools, whether drunk or posting tripe on Topix!
Thank God Peter Hitchens was saved!
Amen!

What makes You imagine that anyone besides You cares about the notables You venerate or castigate? You are the only One who brings them up, and seriously - nobody cares what >Your< opinion is about them.
I have an idea - lets go back to Your dog story - the one where You were already seeking God when somebody answered Your classified ad, so You concluded that it was God talking to You. Do You actually think that if You'd stopped in at a bar, a casino or a brothel instead of a church You wouldn't have gotten Your dog back?
Oh, that's right - You minimize Your story with vague claims that God has shown and proven Himself to You in other ways. Funny that You've never elaborated on those.

The critical difference here is, we see both as bad, you see one as good.
The way I see it, god gets no pass to murder, nor do atheists.
I have consistent standards, and you have double standards.
Religion demands double standards.
I do not worship Hitler or Stalin, but you worship a god that murdered just as they did.
God is God...
He makes things Right, even if you are unwilling to see it!
He gave you a Gift... Accept it!

BTW... I've not seen your side condemn the 56,000,000 babies
your side killed for sex!
