Hitchens delivers one of his best hammer blows to cocky audience member.

Meh. Cheesy title, but I really like the point of discussion in this video. A clearly offended audience member asks Hitchens the question, “If there is no god, why do you spend your whole life trying to convince people there isn’t one? Why don’t you just stay home?”

I feel like this is a question commonly asked of the more outspoken members of the secular community. Why can’t we just shut the hell up? Why can’t we just let the religious people believe what they want? Why do we have to make such a big deal out of it and be so gosh darn offensive to people’s beliefs? Well, as Hitchens goes on to point out, it’s because religious ideology deeply affects the world that we have to live in, oftentimes in an extremely negative way.

So perhaps if the religious people would “leave it alone and stay home”, we could too.

I’m normally not one for feeding trolls, but this abuse of the image of a fellow ranting Scotsman has just severely dented my faith in humanity. 
I’m not even going to bother with correcting this preschooler-esque understanding of evolution. I’m just going to put this up here for all of you to share my feelings of despair. The OP may be a troll, but sadly people thinking like this do exist.
