Christopher Hitchens: "How Am I? I'm Dying." (VIDEO)

Author Christopher Hitchens, an outspoken secular humanist atheist who wrote the best selling book “God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything,” is being medically treated for esophageal cancer. In a recent interview, Christopher Hitchens stated that even though he knows he is dying, he still won't knowingly turn to religion. 

Hitchens said that any religious remarks or sentiments he might utter would be due to lunacy and fear caused by the cancer spreading to his brain, and added that it is possible he might say something indicating he is a religious believer, but that if he does utter these types of words, they would be spoken by someone he doesn't know or recognize. "The entity making such a remark might be a raving, terrified person whose cancer has spread to the brain. I can't guarantee that such an entity wouldn't make such a ridiculous remark, but no one recognizable as myself would ever make such a remark," he said.
