Hitchens is now burning in Hell for being the arrogant , cocky little bastard atheist he was. He is now paying dearly for his disgusting life of serving Satan, and I hope he is burning in intense agony. He was a filthy rotten lover of wickedness and now he is experiencing every painful affliction that the human mind could dream up. He is in a state of utter horror.
George Carlin has been there for over 3 years now for the very same reason.

The only paradox about Hitchens is how he could be so eloquent in his writing and such a boor in his public speaking.

Too bad Hitchens didn't end up like Roger Ebert after his cancer, alive but unable to speak anymore.

Yes,some christians are the most horrible people that any moral person would have the misfortune to ever encounter. They are lovers of death and wallow in the thought of people being tortured in hell for ever. What sick,twisted and disgusting creatures they are.

Yes, and it's because of those sort of people, that I found Hitchens' writings 2 B such an inspiration.

My, my.... What a hateful little godbot you are!!!
I'm just thankful that you aren't around my children, and that your little rant is based on a poorly written, myth.

That is unless you have some proof that this sky-pixe is real.

No, thou Pharisee, thou art going to burn in Hell for being an annoying jackass. Verily, thou shallt also be cursed to go through life with a serious hate complex and thou shallt have a worse life than any atheist.

Mr hitchens has died and has passed over into nothingness or to face his maker may god have mercy on his soul.

So, you're a Muslim? Or did you settle on some other god(s). How much time did you spend actually studying the different theological concepts available? Did you consider Jainism, Buddhism, and all the Eastern philosophies?

Or did you just settle for the one your parents told you is right without any real thought beyond that?

Why don't you become fully hedged, and believe in all of the over 3,000 gods available for your superstitousness.

In my personal flavour of Pascal's Wager, god has no respect for sycophants. It's as likely as your speculative scenario.

So no, judgement day for them? Everybody else on the planet has to molder untouched by Zombie Jesus for generations, but two atheist (just two out of millions) get a fast-pass to a one of a kind judgement day?

BTW why would you presume to know what your god did or didn't do, aren't you busy doing his job for him? Guess what, you aren't the only one. It seems that the religitards just can't wait, so the god is deleted from the equation, and the religitard becomes accuser, judge and jury on a regular basis. No god needed.
