Video: Can Civilization Survive Without God? A Conversation with Christopher and Peter Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens is the author of more than 10 books, including his recent memoir Hitch-22 and the best-selling manifesto God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. Peter is the author of four books including The Abolition of Britain, a major seller in that country, and the recently published The Rage Against God: How Atheism Led Me to Faith, which he wrote to counter Christopher’s book, God Is Not Great. At a luncheon for journalists, the Pew Forum invited the Hitchens brothers to address the question of whether civilization needs God. Video courtesy of CNN.
