  1. Don't be fooled by Hitchens' stoic humility, he and all who face this monster are nothing short of heroic.

    I find it very sad that the world might lose such an inspiring voice, but I don't believe in death, there is no end. In a world without particulars where every system is understood functionally there is no death.

  6. my best wishes of recovery/cure for him. in the worst case, if he dies, he'll be survived by his books and videos on the internet.

  9. it would definitely be sad to see him go. such a witty and intelligent person. 
    yes, he would be survived by his ideas. he seems to debate publicly and appear in the media more than any other famous western atheist.

  10. I think Hitchens is just awesome enough to convert to Pastafarianism on his death bed.  Let's hope that's a good 20 years from now though.

  11. Inspirational Hitch. Just loved the comment about people praying for him, oh could I be that magnanimous.

    Here is hoping modern medicine works its 'magic' and we have many more years of Hitch videos.

  12. You have to respect him for leaving his hair like that. That's a man who isn't hiding from anything. Shows the conviction of his words. Good on ya Hitch, good on ya.

  13. The most articulate and passionate of the New Atheists; I don't see anyone who could replace him.  May he get well and kick theist butt for another 20 years or more.

  14. That was an excellent interview; good job Anderson Cooper. I just wish it were a bit longer. It is going to be a sad day when Hitchens dies.
