    I found this article interesting between two brothers and their beliefs on religion and the war in Iraq. Most of you know Christopher pretty well as being one of the more famous atheists out there as well as being a big supporter of the war in Iraq. He is also a devout lefty. Peter on the other hand is the conservative, never supported the war in Iraq and is a man of faith. Interesting article exploring the dichotomy between the two.

    Peter was a Trotskyist in his younger days. Reading his columns, He still has that authoritarian streak in him.
  3. Thanks for posting that, Mav. Didn't know Chris had a brother. Both write very well.
  4. Chris Hitchens is Top 3 brilliant writers I read...
    Along with Mark Steyn and Bill Simmons.

    But his main arguement that there is no God...
    Because idiots do evil in the name of religion...
    Is simplistic, proves nothing, and is not worthy of an intellectual.
