One of Hitch’s best moments.

If you want to take Hitch’s advice and look at some pictures from the Hubble telescope, here is a large collection. 😉 http://hubblesite.org/gallery/album/entire/npp/all/

    So what was the other guy's response to this? Must have been pitiful in comparison.

    The Grand Canyon, Uluru, Monument Valley …. and don't tell me God put them there. Time and tide put them there. The natural world – yes!

    Now let's all go worship the state like it was a god. Too bad Hitchens won't live to see bitcoin's majesty.

    I was too young to meet this man when he was alive, I never got to even shake his hand but I wish i did. I was inspired by him to think about my religion. and to ask questions.

    Christopher Hitchens has provided me with more wisdom, awe, and consolation throughout his books, intellectual debates, and Hitchslaps on youtube than any religious apologist nut, priest or Church. Ladies and Gentlemen this man with his utter brilliance and oratory skills certainly has awaken the minds of many of Us free thinkers. In my humble opinion, the ultimate polymath.

    Damn I can't even speak to a group of friends without tripping over my words. This is one of the most eloquent and concise speeches I've ever heard. The ability to say exactly what you want to say with such elegance is very admirable.

    She should have died hereafter.
    There would have been a time for such a word.
    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    I really like CH and I'm sorry he's gone, but I'm thankful for all of the material and info he left us. I guess I like him for the same reason we all do, which is the way he spoke and strongly stood up to religion and blind ignorance. I'd much rather listen to this man than some preacher, who in my opinion is completely lost.

    I've watched this every day since I stumbled upon it and yet it still holds it's weight in gold every time.

    He was an amazing person. I love the video you made and wanted to know the soundtrack songs you used?

    I was in awe with the stars of the Universe when I was about 11 years of age and I was still in awe with the human teaching of Jesus of Nazareth at 14 years of age when reading the Gospels. My parents both me a chemistry kit, a microscope and a telescope by age 11 after I kindly demanded it. I was in awe when reading the life of Siddhartha and exploring the Upanishads. I was in awe when I discovered the Tao Te King by Lao Tseu and in awe when I learned about E=MC2 and mostly about the theory of relativity. Look inward and you find beauty outwards, look outwards and you find beauty inwards. Why so much /conflict and war between spirituality of some religion and science? One must one absolutely choose one over the other? Are you not free man and woman? Are you not wise enough to find beauty in all aspects of creation. Why close one eye and not open both in the same time? People should read a little about the way Carl Gustav Jung explains archetypes and you will see religions can be really lively. This feeling of AWE created both science and religion. Maybe they are talking about two aspects of reality that can be enjoyed simultaneously?

    "Regard ye the beauty of Hubbles!"
