Typical "I'm-an-atheist-buttery." When somebody describes Christopher Hitchens's prose as boring and unreadable, you know they either haven't read him at all or are driven by a hidden agenda.

Likewise, when Stephen Hawking announced recently, with messianic certainty, that God could not have created the Universe, he sounded only like a spiteful child, hoping to make his baby brother cry by revealing there is no Santa Claus.

So what should he have done, falsified the physics just in case the truth makes somebody blub their wickle eyes out?

always male

Isn't that a bit insulting to women?

As if the rest of us require professors of theoretical physics or evolutionary biology in order to ponder the big questions of human existence . . .

Actually yes, in your case it probably is what you require. But you'll need to read their books, not just the titles and not just third-hand opinions about them.
