Christopher Hitchens: The man who questioned

Christopher Hitchens (1949-2011), the man who was at war against delusion, the man who questioned religion, and other pathologies (he wrote the book 'God is not great', a book you will wish you had read as early as possible in life) has died of esophageal cancer.

Since Hitchens did not believe in a heaven so the usual platitudes of 'rest in heaven' or 'rest in peace' won't do.

But, Hitchens would have liked it very much that we continue to question things.

We are human. We can ask questions.
