Hitchens will always be with us

When god-believers spout their nonsense at you, all you have to do is remember Christopher Hitchens' words:
“That which can be asserted without evidence, can be dismissed without evidence.”
Start by asking them this: "What is your evidence for believing in god?" They have no sensible answer for this question. Invariably, they will offer mush in response, usually in the form of a word salad.

That's when you lay the Hitchens quote on them. It's everything you need to respond to a religious idiot -- all in one sentence. Hitchens will never die. He will always be with us.

I love this man. Words (and logic) were his legacy up to taking his last breath. His words will live on and on and ........ on.
