"Never be afraid of stridency"
- Richard Dawkins: One of my main beefs with religion is the way they label children as a "Catholic child" or a "Muslim child". I've become a bit of a bore about it.
- Christopher Hitchens: You must never be afraid of that charge, any more than stridency.
- Richard Dawkins: I will remember that.
- Christopher Hitchens: If I was strident, it doesn't matter - I was a jobbing hack, I bang my drum. You have a discipline in which you are very distinguished. You've educated a lot of people; nobody denies that, not even your worst enemies. You see your discipline being attacked and defamed and attempts made to drive it out.
- CH: Stridency is the least you should muster . . . It's the shame of your colleagues that they don't form ranks and say, "Listen, we're going to defend our colleagues from these appalling and obfuscating elements."
- Christopher Hitchens: I'm not here to debate physics and may I add, I'm not competent to do so.
- Frank Turek: So you don't have an answer for how the universe came into existence?
- Christopher Hitchens: No more than you do, no.
- Frank Turek: If all space and all time had a beginning, then the cause must be outside of space and time.
- Christopher Hitchens: You don't know how it happened, and neither do I.
