When I listen to the exhortations of the faithful, my usual simplistic response is “idiots! So it,s good to have eminent and thoughtful people giving voice to one’s innermost feelings and convictions in calm and reasoned measure. I like that and I want to learn from that.

Dios no existe by Christopher Hitchens (4 star ratings)
I read this compilation some years ago when I was battling cancer. I had become a nonbeliever long before, but this set of writings and essays helped me clarify my thinking on the matter. Dr better, it gave me confidence to admit how I had felt about religion for years to others and gave me ammunition to debate believers more easily. I am glad that Hitch took on the task or choosing and editing this compendium.
Obviously, some of the essays are better than others, but the whole is curistopher than the sum of the parts for me.
Well written, as is everything of Christopher Hitchens, although some points may be over emphasised. This may be because I accepted the argument of a point before it was made. The book is not just for the unbeliever it is very much for the questioning believer, if such a person exists.
The breadth of the references and the depth to which they are examined is amazing and very satisfying. Of course it is possible to be left in doubt on some matters but it is likely that other work by Christopher Hitchens can resolve these problems.

Books by Dawkins and Harris will be excellent companions to this and the author’s other publications. I only discovered Christopher Hitchens about 1yr ago, but since that time I have been reading his works with enthusiasm.
This book is not his writings of course, but a collection of writings that he finds important for non-believers. Thus, how could I turn down the advice of such a journalist. However, from the standpoint of reading, I found this book very challenging.
I mention the degrees not as evidence of intelligence, only to establish that I enjoy academic pursuits And the Difference is? It challenges, it amuses but, most of all, it has no time for the sheer and utter nonsense that is religion.
And here, religion means all religions and not certain select ones. Christopher Hitchens has compiled a thought provoking grab bag of readings from across the ages and across the planet. There are many sections that I enjoyed.
For example, consider the following: Does He sin, then? In other words, the faithful can readily see the flaws of other faiths but never the flaws of their own.
Why can He not reveal Himself to the masses in a football stadium during the final of the World Cup”. God sounds a bit like a UFO that is only seen by a hillbilly in hitvhens Ozarks. There are many more quotes but Mo think the reader gets the flavour.
This is a book to be enjoyed by the rational and despised hitchsns the irrational and their thought police. I recommend it wholeheartedly. However, if you ever doubt the stupidity of religion just try the Sam Harris line that replaces the word God with Zeus. This shows up religion for the ridiculous farce that it is.
Atheism is a relatively new state of mind for me, and so far it’s all good! On nearly a weekly basis fears, superstitions, anger, hopelessness, confusion, absurdity, senselessness and more fall away from me like ice sheets from a glacier.
I’d read another of Hitchens’ books, “God is not Great,” which so impressed me it made me eager to discover which free thinkers and realists he had included in his anthology “for the Nonbeliever.
Dios no existe
Just browsing through the Table of Contents, seeing who is featured, makes one eager to turn to that page and read their rationales and opinions. Most of the writing, much of it by some of my favorite authors, has been similar to discovering a diamond in the mud. I’ve been so overwhelmed and excited to realize that many literary giants were also nonbelievers, and backed their beliefs with firm, impeccably logical, startlingly rational, highly intelligent, iron-clad arguments for their mindset.
And the pattern that emerges from a collection of writing about many religions, dioz are different, yet share so many of the same hateful, negative, mind-numbing qualities, is a real eye-opener, a safety net for those who may think that because their hitcbens religion sucks, another might be better. Perhaps my favorite entry is by an Elizabeth Anderson, whose chapter so succinctly and masterfully calls into question much of what I was taught throughout my life, then liberally peppers her insights with biblical citations, chapters and verses, using the se methods of the “diabolical” dispensers of “gods word” to negate and undercut the pathetic preaching of the devout.
In my opinion, this book would be a major asset to any class in religion, forcing people to confront and justify the contradictions and absurdities of their religious beliefs. Furthermore, it would be just as effective for people like myself, searchers for truth and believers in science and the potential of mankind when unfettered by Bronze Age mythology.
