Well the accolades do pour in.

Christopher Hitchins; world class intellectual, raconteur extraordinaire, master of rejoinder!

Unfortunately for Christopher, who died the other day, his most masterful rejoinder now will be; ” Oh Snap! It really is hot in here can you turn it down!”

Well he won’t actually be saying that, it will be more like a scream pleading for mercy.

Christopher Hitchins, the intellectual.  BS!  Do men, not worth a bucket of warm spit, really think we can be “intellectual.”

I beg to differ with all who thought Hitchins was a thinker, but he was dumb as a brick.  Your pet goat, which as it turns out is an apt comparison with Hitchins, has a better thinking process than Hitchins.  The most obvious thing in the universe was for Hitchins the intellectual, the atheist, simply not there.  He was intellectually moribund and spiritually blind.

The most obvious thing, rather a real person, in the universe, is a Creator, unless of course you lack the critical thinking skills like Hitchins.    Hitchins the doubter, unable to put it all together.   Funny, hysterically funny, is the fact that some “little ole” 80 year old “sharecroppers” widow with [because of life’s circumstances] a 6th grade education can score a 100 on the only question that counts.   And, world class intellectual, Hitchins made ZERO [nada, zip, goose egg] on that same one question test.

It is a test!  Life is a test!

How you answer the only question that counts goes a long [verrrry loooong] way to your final score on that test.

The question?  “Who do YOU say that I am?”

Hitchins answer to that question was something along the line: “Well, in spite of the eyewitness accounts, in spite of the historic evidence, in spite of the scientific evidence, in spite of the personal evidence, and in spite of the question, YOU DO NOT EXIST!  Nobody ever asked the question’ “Who do you say that I am?”

Critical thinking?  Pasting here from the “criticalthinking.org: site.

Critical Thinking as Defined by the National Council for Excellence in Critical Thinking, 1987
A statement by Michael Scriven & Richard Paul for the
{presented at the 8th Annual International Conference on Critical Thinking and Education Reform, Summer 1987}.

Critical thinking is the intellectually disciplined process of actively and skillfully conceptualizing, applying, analyzing, synthesizing, and/or evaluating information gathered from, or generated by, observation, experience, reflection, reasoning, or communication, as a guide to belief and action. In its exemplary form, it is based on universal intellectual values that transcend subject matter divisions: clarity, accuracy, precision, consistency, relevance, sound evidence, good reasons, depth, breadth, and fairness.

How about, just putting it ALL together.

Putting it ALL together!  A process which poor old Chris just wasn’t spiritually or intellectually up to.

We cannot imagine real perfection.  I try, but how can a bucket of warm spit, like me, get my mind around or even approach the concept.  Imagine a white room a billion miles across; up, down, across, high, wide, deep, etc.  Then imagine a spec of dust in that white room and that does not even to approach the perfection we are trying to imagine.

Isa 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

The ancients knew what “filthy rags” were.   Put in modern day words, “filthy rags” means [=] “old USED Kotex.”

So, I am that speck of dust in that “billion mile” white room.  And to the perfection of the Creator, I am no better than “filthy rags,”  an “OLD USED Kotex.”  The best of us, of which I am the least, look to ABSOLUTE  [look up the definition] perfection, like an old used Kotex.  Pretty worthless!

But Perfection, has to have a component of goodness, patience, and mercy.  Almost, I say ALMOST, [almost,  because perfection has to balance goodness and mercy with justice and perfection] infinite patience, mercy, and goodness.

How does a modern day science “white room” deal with dirt?  How does the billion mile white room deal with that speck of dust [DIRT!]?  How does the infinitely perfect, deal with an “old used kotex.”

How does a parent deal with a very stubborn child?

The One Who is infinitely perfect asked Christopher Hitchins a question.   Now in all fairness, that infinite perfection gave us ALL the clues we need to answer His one question test.   Christopher was just ignorant and too stubborn to admit the obvious.

It Is A Test!  Life is a test, a one question test, and we have been given all the clues that anyone; anyone except a fool, [buffoon, clown, goof, DUPE, Christopher Hitchins] needs, to have the only answer that counts.

We have been given all the information we need, coupled with warnings about what happens when you just dismiss the obvious.

What happens when you can’t even correctly answer a very simple, one question text?

NEXT: Spitting on the sidewalk?
