Love him or hate him but he sure provides food for thought. He also exercised his right to free speech. Was and is he a positive influence for atheist thought or would atheism have grown stronger without him? Did he smash the doors open so other more moderate voices could speak with reason and without being attacked quite so much? Will history be kind to Hitchens? The book by Greta Christina is one I own but according to Kindle I've only read 41% of it. At the time I read it I tended to agree with it more than disagree and at times I have some of the anger that Hitchens had but I darn't express it.
