Go to: One in seven thinks end of world is coming

compared to 22 percent in Turkey and the United States

Hmm, not too far off from the legendary 27% figure we see so often. Perhaps the 5% difference is explained by those who think Obama won't be reelected.

his website plays host to the largest atheist congregation outside of North Korea

Well, so much for being "monolithic" in one's thinking. Lazy crap like the sentence above is about as monolithic as it gets.

Go to: God Sent Christopher Hitchens to Hell Because He Loved Him

Comment 8 by some asshole :

Is it so hard to understand that Hitchens did not defy god, as this person claims?

Actually, Hitchens described himself as an "anti-theist". I heard him state in one interview that if there really were a "god", he (Hitchens) would still defy it, because he was opposed to authoritarianism in any form.

Comment 19 by pekkaa :

Yeah, he only came publicly of the closet as an atheist, made a poster and gave atheism a face that millions of people know and love. Certainly nothing compared of what you guys have accomplished by preaching here in this forum.

No kidding. This kid still has a long career ahead of him, and the easy thing would have been to just babble the usual platitudes, or say he's "spiritual" or some such nonsense. He must have known he'd lose some fans over this (which, by the way, seldom works the same in reverse).
