Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens, an atheist and polemicist, was best known for his controversial book, God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything, and, more recently, for his memoir, Hitch 22.  Hitchens was a columnist for The Atlantic, Slate, and Vanity Fair, and debated his views around the English-speaking world.  Hitchens was one of the so-called “New Atheists”, along with other notables like Richard Dawkins.


David BerlinskiDavid Berlinski describes himself as “a secular Jew and an agnostic.”  He has written a number of books on mathematics, but he is best known for his appearance in the Ben Stein film “Expelled” as well as for his irreverent assault upon the New Atheists in his book, The Devil’s Delusion: Atheism and Its Scientific Pretensions.  Mr. Berlinski, whose immediate family was saved during the Holocaust by the "American Schindler" Varian Fry, resides in Paris.  He possesses a Ph.D. from Princeton University and formerly taught philosophy and mathematics at Stanford University and the University of Paris.
