*This is a copy of a post I made on my personal facebook profile in 2018, which I recently discovered has been deleted by facebook, so I'm reposting it here. The images and screenshots were part of the original FB post.*

Having been raised Lutheran and spent most of my early 20s as a devout Christian, there wasn't any single defining moment or point where I renounced, it was just a long process of questioning and alternative study over time. While Christopher Hitchens and the other four horsemen of new atheism did have somewhat of an influence on me in my late 20s, I wouldn't say they played a central role in my deconversion by any means. I enjoyed watching Hitchens' debates and his oratory style more than anything. Same with youtubers like the AmazingAtheist and darkmatter2525, I never really considered myself part of the militant atheist crowd, but I always found them entertaining and thought-provoking.

From the moment I came across Hitchens, I always found his hatred of Christianity and his endless harping on historical religious atrocities compared to the glaringly noticeable lack of criticism on his part for much more recent atrocities under atheistic communism, to be an obvious but puzzling double standard (for reasons I didn't understand until later). I have often wished that Hitchens was still alive today to "hitchslap" the SJW scourge. What I didn't realize or fully understand until more recently was the role of Judaism in Hitchens' worldview, his deep history of communist support and lifelong devotion to Trotskyism. It's helped add a lot of insight for me into the current state of affairs in England...
