Yes, there is an afterlife for Hitch. He will live on in his writings, which people will value for many years to come.

Absolutely. As I type, my torrent program is uploading his work. Today someone, somewhere, will open up a PDF copy of "God is not Great" and Hitch will live on a little bit.

I'm going to miss him, but at least his words will live on, to inspire others as they inspired me.

Speaking Ill of the Dead
Heaven forfend that anyone should disrespect the recently deceased.

If people vilified Hitchens during his life I see no particular reason why they should cease to do so upon his death, provided that they are sincere.

If, on the other hand, they are merely trolling, well that is both pathetic and despicable. Such people reveal themselves in their own words. Best ignore them.

Speaking Ill of the Dumb
Five years of debating could hardly be considered trolling. Please try again

If you weren't quite so shamefully stupid and illiterate, you might have noticed that I was actually defending you there, you colossal moron.

You criticised Hitchens.

I defended your right to do so.

I never accused you of trolling and in point of fact, was not thinking of you when I mentioned trolling.

Remember what I wrote;

But you didn't seem to think that those words applied to you. You assumed that the bit about trolls did apply to you. How very revealing.

BTW, please send me (us) all of Hitchens overwhelming insight and wisdom, we are happy to deal with them, as we have anyother

If you want to read his books, buy or download them them yourself. You don't need my help, or at least, you shouldn't.
