God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything PDF

Christopher Hitchens

Hitchens, one of our great political pugilists, delivers the best of the recent rash of atheist manifestos. The same contrarian spirit that makes him delightful reading as a political commentator, even (or especially) when hes completely wrong, makes him an entertaining huckster prosecutor once he has God placed in the dock. And can he turn a phrase!: monotheistic religion is a plagiarism of a plagiarism of a hearsay of a hearsay, of an illusion of an illusion, extending all the way back to a fabrication of a few nonevents. Hitchenss one-liners bear the marks of considerable sparring practice with believers. Yet few believers will recognize themselves as Hitchens associates all of them for all time with the worst of historys theocratic and inquisitional moments. All the same, this is salutary reading as a means of culling believers weaker arguments: that faith offers comfort (false comfort is none at all), or has provided a historical hedge against fascism (it mostly hasnt), or that Eastern religions are better (nope). The books real strength is Hitchenss on-the-ground glimpses of religions worst face in various war zones and isolated despotic regimes. But its weakness is its almost fanatical insistence that religion poisons everything, which tips over into barely disguised misanthropy.
