An English-born, American journalist who is probably the most badass of the atheist dream-team (Dawkins, Hitchens, Sagan, Dennet, and Harris). He is a well-known author who writes books like "god Is Not Great" and "The Portable Atheist: Essential Reading for the Non-Believer." He is known for his merciless wit and intellectual finesse that allows him to dominate his religious opponents in a debate. His comebacks have been named Hitchslaps
Christopher Hitchens has been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and is currently (3/27/2011) in stage four of the cancer. Despite this, he is still up and fighting, continuing to debate those who are stupid enough to challenge him.
We're all rooting for you Mr Hitchens!
