Dawkins is performing? Lead guitar or rhythm? Would love to see a Johnny Be Good routine. Sam Harris on drums and AC Grayling on keyboards.

Failing that, a 10-minute reading of 'hate mail' for comic relief.

Seeing Scott Burdick's name as credit for this video put a big smile on my face. Scott is one of the top representational painters today. (just google his name with art or painting) When I first visited his (and his wife's )website, I was pleased to run across some strongly atheistic articles. This was so refreshing since many artists write highly theistic or new agey views; I emailed to thank him. Be sure to check his work out along with this event he is supporting.

Perhaps the good Professor singing 'Highway to Hell' by ACDC? This I would pay to see.

The whole world has to win by a thinking, critical, sceptic and, yes, atheist America. Down with fundamentalism of any kind.

Inspiring and apt closing words from Hitch at the end there. Got a lump in my throat hearing the great man's voice.

Every time I hear the voice of Christopher Hitchens I'm reminded of the gaping hole he's left behind, I imagine him speaking at this type of event alongside Richard, and the huge impact he would likely have on the servicemen and women present. He left too damn soon, too damn soon.

Don't like it. It's verging on state-worship instead of god-worship.

I'm pretty sure no one wants 'state-worship' any more than they want 'god-worship'.

This will be interesting, would love to go if I can... and I'm stationed here at Ft. B. ;}

There will be children there. Reading out hateful letters full of vitriolic threats and swearing from Christians wouldn't be appropriate.

Comment 4, Ridelo,

'The whole world has to win by a thinking, critical, sceptic and, yes, atheist America. Down with fundamentalism of any kind.'

I take it this is irony?

Rock the Fort, "cost 30K in taxpayers money for security alone". I guess they didn't bother thinking who their target audience was.

A brilliant event, kudos to all involved in organizing it and thanks to Richard Dawkins for attending. Wish I could be there.
