What a beautiful mind lost:

Did you know he supported Dubya and the war against Iraq? What should we think about that....?

yea, I didn't agree with him on some things...although considering that war was predicated on lies and deceit (unlike those other wars), did he ever revise his position? Some of the stances taken by Hitchens and Dawkins and others regarding Islamo-fascism can seem suspiciously like neocon or Christian supremacist views, but the humanist and pluralist motivations are obviously different. I will miss the courage of his voice.

He will be sadly missed. :gloomy:

I'm not sure it's appropriate, but...



... peace be the journey, Christopher. :candle:
Peace over anger. Honour over hate. Strength over fear.

What a way with words he had... he will be missed.
