In the narrow space he has to maneuver in catholic doctrine, he is very atheist.

True — some days, the Pope is my favorite atheist.

How surprised would you say Hitchens would be? I think he’d say he was telling us all along the astral plain existed!

Richard Dawkins argued somewhere that if a genuine atheist academic came to know solid proof of the afterlife or a creator, he would be the first to admit that his prior views were wrong.

Of course, Hitchens was an insufferable know-it-all first, and an atheist second. Whatever his message would be, he would make you feel like a minuscule moron with his delivery.
