When you look at the Hitchslaps, I predict a few things:
- You will find clips about many of the topics that atheists and skeptics study
- You will want to remember where to find them again in future to point them out to others
- You will just LOVE many of the things Hitch says, and
- You will find it almost impossible to find them again in future (even if you bookmarked them carefully).
In a series of posts over the next few weeks I am planning to generate the material for "The Amazing Hitchslap Index" which will then reside here on Something Surprising as a resource for all you fans of Hitch.
The intention is to generate a table of the best quotations (sometimes paraphrased) and the type of subject material covered in each Hitchslap, to list the people in the debates (where possible) and to list the other works and authors who Hitch calls as 'witnesses'. By posting a few at a time over about 10 weeks I hope to collect your suggestions together and implement them in the final single document containing everything.
In the meantime, enjoy this Hitchslap which is the one most watched so far.
As the index progresses please leave your comments using your name or pseudonym and a link to your blog and I will credit to you in the final document. Add things that I have missed and correct things that I have got wrong.
Keep an eye on this blog for the first installment, part 1 of the essential guide to the Hitchslaps, starting one day this week and then every week until the project is complete.
