Hitchens' Voice Stilled

One of the four horsemen of the new atheist apocalypse, succumbed to cancer Thursday...

Christopher Hitchens, the author of God is Not Great, writer of wicked diatribes against Mother Teresa, and the only journalist I'm aware of who elected to be waterboarded to prove it wasn't torture - and then promptly and publicly changed his mind, died Thursday 15 December 2011, aged 62 years.

Blogs written by persons who knew him better are doing a fine job of eulogizing the man, his courage, and his voice.

Bad Astronomy

Why Evolution Is True

The Rogue's Gallery

Token Skeptic

Sam Harris, another horseman, the youngest

Dan Dennett, another of the four horsemen, the least offensive

Richard Dawkins, the senior horseman (the "Witch-king of Angmar" if you will)
