Texas Freethought Convention u Houstonu bila je mjesto gdje se nakon dugo vremena u javnosti pojavio Christopher Hitchens. Zajedno s Richardom Dawkinsom oko sat vremena su razgovarali s publikom (oko tisuću ljudi) i odgovarali na pitanja. Christopher Hitchens boluje od raka jednjaka, s bolešću s bori oko godinu dana. Hitchens je poznat kao superzvijezda ateiszma, njegova knjiga ‘God is not great’ prevedena je i na hrvatski.
PZ Myers na Pharynguli opisuje Hitchensa ovako:
He gave a wonderful, fiery, eloquent acceptance speech, and then he took questions for almost an hour ? and he was willing to go on longer and seemed grateful for an opportunity to talk to the public again. He was fierce, courageous, and well-spoken as always, and kept the audience awed and inspired the whole time.

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.
