“I suppose that one reason I have always detested religion is its sly tendency to insinuate the idea that the universe is designed with 'you' in mind or, even worse, that there is a divine plan into which one fits whether one knows it or not. This kind of modesty is too arrogant for me.”

- Christopher Hitchens

This kind of modesty is too arrogant for me.- Christopher Hitchens".

Who is Christopher Hitchens?

Why would anyone listen to him, unless they were full of unbelief, bitter, or trying to justify their sinful life, to find a lever of logic to explain away their subconscious information of the spiritual nature of the Creator of Life.


Romans 1:20 New International Version (NIV)

"For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse."


Christopher H is not worth following, he is a pommie, the worst kind of the Imperial self-centeredness, that always leads to gross arrogance and bigotry.

Why would any care what CH says after all his philosophy is Karl Marx atheism? A leftist, communist philosophy.

Christopher Hitchens has no real authority when it comes to first principles of logic, correct worldview and correct life philosophy.

Christopher Hitchens has deluded himself, by rejecting the rational doctrine of faith in a Creator of Life.

The Holy Bible instruction to humanity is to choose life, to choose to obey a rational faith in the Creator of Life.

The Bible does have authority to speak true wisdom to all humanity.

Here are some basic facts of life.


Psalm 14:1. English Standard Version (ESV)

The Fool Says, There Is No God

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds;
there is none who does good.


Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight."


John 3:19 New International Version (NIV)

"This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil."


Proverbs 28:13 New International Version (NIV)

"Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy."


1 John 1:7 New International Version (NIV)

"But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all[a] sin."


Christopher Hitchens is a FOOL.

He is also a false thought leader leading many others to a wrong conclusion about life from a false premise.

Jesus from Nazareth would also reject CH thinking 100%.

Why would Jesus reject Christopher Hitchens philosophy?

Jesus would reject Christopher Hitchens philosophy because CH is dead wrong. And Jesus is no fool.

The New Atheist are like fools, they are like fools because they make the most basic mistakes when it comes to objective rational logic, and subjective emotions. Emotions of anger, hate, bitterness, always skew the mind to think wrong. Wrong premise, wrong conclusion.

"In the beginning Elohin". Genesis 1:1.


The wisdom of the Creator of Life comes from outside of time and space, the wisdom of God as revealed in the Holy Bible was inspired by the Holy Spirit. Meaning, that the message courier was the Holy Spirit, that provided the prohetic messages that are recorded in the Bible.

Hebrews 11:6 King James Version (KJV)

"But without faith, it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him."


Jesus is the way and the truth and the life.

John 14:6 New International Version (NIV)

"Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

Logic and Reason.




"Does God exist?"

"Or is the material universe all that is, or ever was, or ever will be?"

The Cosmological Argument.

"Whatever begins to exist has a cause."

"The universe began to exist."

"Therefore, the universe has a cause."

Premise 1.

Whatever begins to exist has a cause.

True. In a cause and effect material universe.

If something can come from nothing, then why don't we see that happening all the time?

Look around. Where ever you may be located, look around and name the material items, that you think came from nothing.

No brand, no maker, no owner? No seed? No life.

Everyday experience and scientific evidence confirm our first premise.
If something begins to exist, it must have a cause. Cause ---> effect.

Premise 2.

"The universe began to exist? Or has it always existed?"

The Athiest often says that the universe has existed forever.

E.g. "The universe is just there, And that's all.": Bertrand Russell.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics:

"Processes taking place is a closed system always tend towards a state of equilibrium."

The Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the Universe is running out of usable energy. "


"If the universe had been here forever it would have run out of usable energy by now."

"The Second Law points us to a universe that has a definite beginning."

This is further confirmed by a series of Scientific Discoveries.

1915 Albert eistein General Teory of Relativism.

This discovery enabled a meaningful discussion about the past history of the universe.

Followed by GAlexander Friedmann and Georges Lemaitre, each working with Einstein equations predicted that the universe is expanding.

1929 Edwin Hubble measured the red shift in light from distant galaxies.

This empirical evidence confirmed that the universe is expanding and that it had a definite beginning. It sprang into being from a single point in the finite past."

It was a monumental discovery, almost beyond comprehension".

However, not everyone is fond of a finite universe.


Three leading cosmologists:
Arvind Borde.
Alan Guth.
Alexandre Vilenkin

Prove, any universe which has, on average been expanding through its history cannot be eternal in the past, but must have an absolute beginning".

Scientist "can no longer hide behind a past-eternal universe. There is no escape, they have to face the problem of a cosmic beginning". Alexander Vilenkin.

Any adequate model must have a beginning.

it is quite plausible that both of the first two premises are true,

--> Whatever begins to exist has a cause.
--> The universe began to exist.

That means that the conclusion is also true.

Therefore, the universe has a cause."

Since the universe cannot cause itself, its cause must be beyond the space-time universe.


Vesa Leinonen

"It is said that an argument is what convinces a reasonable man and a proof is what it takes to convince even an unreasonable man."

“With the proof now in place, cosmologist can no longer hide behind the possibility of a past eternal universe."


Alexander Vilenkin.

Director of the Institute of Cosmology-Tufts University.

It is ignorant and irrational to say there is no Creator for Life.

Psalm 14:1.

"The Fool Says, There Is No God".

Considering no human being has ever searched out the ends of the universe, to be able to say there was no one there.

The universe is not the same scale as a garage or allocated area to be searched.

Humans can search out a building, or to search and sniff out an area, and able to say there was no one there, with a certain amount of certainty.

The universe is on an entirely different scale compared to the planet earth.

Human beings have not even searched out the depth of the sea. There are new species of fish and other water creatures discovered every year. Why is that? It is because nobody had ever been there before to see them.

Therefore, it is better to give God the benefit of doubt, and also to trust the message about God in the 66 books of the Bible, and 40 authors advice for a sustainable life philosophy, that arises from genuine faith and spiritual communication with the Creator of LIfe.
