Christopher Hitchens stumbles across the truth but tries to pick himself up as though nothing happened.

In a debate someone gently pointed out to Christopher Hitchens' his own hypocrisy.
I.e On one hand he derided some religions for being dogmatic yet he himself was being dogmatic.
When his blatant double standard was clearly revealed, all his devious and subversive tricks were all in vain as he tried to back pedal by claiming that he did not say such a thing.
Despite the fact that he only dug a deeper hole for himself he did however have the presense of mind to move the discussion onto another subject so as not to be in the glare of the TRUTH for too long.
Another example of how the proud and pompous are often tripped up by their own slips.


Bro Hubbard, Sinner ...

Didn't you get it yet? It's all figurative, don't you know?!

Mind you, Jeezy calls it everlasting fire. Claiming that to be figurative, a metaphor for death, is a bit of a stretch. Easier to believe Goblians have been shamed by civilised folk into pretending millions of other Goblians were mistaken for nearly two millennia.

I note Baade hasn't answered my question as to what happens to those who are not "completely and utterly destroyed."

All in all, the silliness of Goblians proves there is such a thing as infinity. Eye

When you're ready to come up with an absolute basis for your objectivist moral relativism I'd like to know more.
I.e Hubbard, that means telling me something I don't know and which relates to the question at hand.
Perhaps then you'll see that pointing holes at another opposing view does NOT equate to you proving your position.
In the meantime when will you and Linz begin to realise just how utterly ridiculous it is for you to get bent out of shape with your prejudiced judgement of someone you consider a non entity?
Your antics make as about much sense on turning your sights on the easter bunny and the tooth fairy.

What I do know is that I personally do not know of any God who'd punish someone in a Hell like place.

Mmm. Let's see:

Revelation 14:11 “the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever and they have no rest day and night”
Revelation 20:14 “This is the second death, the lake of fire”
Revelation 20:15 “If anyone’s name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire”

So how do you know which bits of the Book to leave in as your 'absolutes', and which to leave out?

I'm curious as to whether this means Hitchens will merely be left in his current completely and utterly deceased state, or resuscitated in order to be "completely and utterly destroyed."

I wonder about that too.

If the latter, isn't it a bit superfluous ... ?

It seems that way to me.

I wonder ...

No, the Sinner Hitchens (has been and/or) will be completely and utterly destroyed.

I'm curious as to whether this means Hitchens will merely be left in his current completely and utterly deceased state, or resuscitated in order to be "completely and utterly destroyed." If the latter, isn't it a bit superfluous, or is the point of the exercise that Jeezy, Gobby and Ghosty can tell him what a stinker he was for not believing in them?

I've no idea at all where Hitchens is now.

He's rotting in his grave.

What say you? The Sinner Hitchens to be burned in horrible suffering for all eternity?

No, the Sinner Hitchens (has been and/or) will be completely and utterly destroyed.

Everything you ever wanted to know about Hell

So can we agree, Burnsy, that the consensus among loving Christians is, that ... our Loving God is going to torture Sinner Hitchens in Hell for all eternity?

That may or may not be the consensus view, but (as far as I know) no one around here believes it. So it's a straw man. Perhaps you should consign it the garbage incinerator.

I've no idea at all where

I've no idea at all where Hitchens is now. What I do know is that I personally do not know of any God who'd punish someone in a Hell like place.

If there is a Heaven for those who chose God then how is it not reasonable to assert there is an alternative refuge for people who utterly reject or despise him.

How is it moral for a God to drag someone into their heaven against their will?

If there be a hell I'd imagine there'd be more than enough residents within who'd only be too happy to inflict "the fire and brimstone" without some God adding to their misery.

But he didn't believe in

Mark Hubbard's picture

But he didn't believe in Jesus our Lord, so he's going to hell, right?

Sorry I can't agree with your

Burnsy's picture

Sorry I can't agree with your vitriolic diatribe.

I was merely bringing your attention to a historical factual occurence and also merely repeating a self evident fact that Hitchens was a pompous, proud and bombastic prat who loved the sound of his own hypocritical rhetoric.

I apologise to you all if I pricked your self righteous & indignant insecurities.

However I remain unconvinced why Hitchens needs to be treated as some demi-god sacred cow while other people (who actually live true to their own absolute moral code) become fair game for malicious and ignorant lunatics.

If the deluded hat fits may I suggest you wear it so the rest of us can see you for what you really are.

So can we agree, Burnsy, that

Mark Hubbard's picture

So can we agree, Burnsy, that the consensus among loving Christians is, that because Sinner Hitchens has dared to question the Holy God and Father, and his son, Jesus Christ, our Loving God has smote Sinner Hitchens with his terrible swift cancer, and that for his sins, our Loving God is going to torture Sinner Hitchens in Hell for all eternity? And that this is a sign of the immense Love of our Christ ahd Holy Father?

What say you? The Sinner Hitchens to be burned in horrible suffering for all eternity?

Bursny, you are irrational

Sandi's picture

and you constantly endeavour to legitimate your perspective which is based upon delusion.

The subordination of reason to delusion is one of the worst forms of self-debasement, second to other irrational folk who would force others to submit to their delusions.

Rational: 2+2 = 4
Irrational: Prayer made with the belief that god can and will change things.
(and also because you asked him on the phone even though you can't record a response.)
