Cristopher Hitchens je za Vanity Fair napisao drugi u nizu članaka o svojoj bolesti i o reakcijama ljudi oko njega:
What?s an atheist to think when thousands of believers (including prominent rabbis and priests) are praying for his survival and salvation?while others believe his cancer was divinely inspired, and hope that he burns in hell?
When I described the tumor in my esophagus as a ?blind, emotionless alien,? I suppose that even I couldn?t help awarding it some of the qualities of a living thing. This at least I know to be a mistake: an instance of the ?pathetic fallacy? (angry cloud, proud mountain, presumptuous little Beaujolais) by which we ascribe animate qualities to inanimate phenomena. To exist, a cancer needs a living organism, but it cannot ever become a living organism. Its whole malice?there I go again?lies in the fact that the ?best? it can do is to die with its host. Either that or its host will find the measures with which to extirpate and outlive it.
But, as I knew before I became ill, there are some people for whom this explanation is unsatisfying. To them, a rodent carcinoma really is a dedicated, conscious agent?a slow-acting suicide-murderer?on a consecrated mission from heaven. You haven?t lived, if I can put it like this, until you have read contributions such as this on the Web sites of the faithful:
Who else feels Christopher Hitchens getting terminal throat cancer [sic] was God?s revenge for him using his voice to blaspheme him? Atheists like to ignore FACTS. They like to act like everything is a ?coincidence?. Really? It?s just a ?coincidence? [that] out of any part of his body, Christopher Hitchens got cancer in the one part of his body he used for blasphemy? Yea, keep believing that Atheists. He?s going to writhe in agony and pain and wither away to nothing and then die a horrible agonizing death, and THEN comes the real fun, when he?s sent to HELLFIRE forever to be tortured and set afire.
PZ Mayers je na svom blogu podijelio s nama što misli o tri monoteističke religije:
Half the people in the world commit this sin against god: they are born women.
It’s an astounding thing that any women at all accept Christianity, Judaism, or Islam; these are profoundly misogynistic faiths. Throughout the Christian Bible, women are treated as chattel to be abused and misused, and uppity women are regarded as the worst of the lot, fit only to be slaughtered. There are parts of the Bible that read like snuff porn ? but it’s all OK, because it’s the Bible, God’s holy word, and if God is gonna have to choke a bitch, who are we to question it?
We can trace the attitude right back to Genesis 3:16. The Bible begins with a story that blames women for all the pain of sin in the world, and she needs to be put in her place, under the dominion of men.
When I started looking up woman-hating Bible quotes, I was a bit overwhelmed; it’s everywhere. I won’t even try to flood this article with the many contemptuous words about women that you can find there, but will give a few examples. Job 14 is an interesting one, because it at least acknowledges that men are damned, too?but why are they so troubled? Because they’re born of those filthy, dirty, nasty women.
