Ah yes Christopher Hitchins, one of my favorite atheist, conversationist and writer. Too bad he died so quickly. He wrote an article about his experience with exercise and healthful living once in Vanity Fair.....funny and true at the same time.
Right or wrong , may actually be kind of fun to find out if there is any religious truth after we leave this mortal coil. After all, one is usually born into a religion and not as a personal choice.....so that may be a form of abuse. I'm going with the odds that we each have a soul, for better or worse. Alan Watts is still one of my favorite East to West philosophers. Another intellectual drunk, like Hitchins, who died too quickly.
watts is awesome...
i'm on the other end of the spectrum i suppose
i think we're self-important apes living lives with no meaning beyond those which we invent
either way... death awaits us all as does revelation (or lack thereof)
