I had not seen this before. Ken Miller reduces Christopher Hitchens to namecalling in place of actual argument. Good for Ken.

It might be time for Hitch to take a break, head to warmer climes and drink himself shapeless. Maybe he'll be surprised by what he finds when he wakes up.

Don't you love reading things like this, from Steven Pinker on that same link:

The belief that the earth was the center of the universe was once taken as evidence for the centrality of humanity in a purposeful universe (that's why Galileo got into trouble for challenging it).

How many errors could he pack into one sentence?
