God Fearing People – Hitchens

God Fearing People – Why Are We So Afraid of Offending Muslims?

“Thus, Islamic belief, however simply or modestly it may be stated, is an extreme
position to begin with. No human being can possibly claim to know that there is
a God at all, or that there are, or were, any other gods to be repudiated. And
when these ontological claims have collided, as they must, with their logical
limits, it is even further beyond the cognitive capacity of any person to claim
without embarrassment that the lord of creation spoke his ultimate words to an
unlettered merchant in seventh-century Arabia. Those who utter such fantastic
braggings, however many times a day they do so, can by definition have no idea
what they are talking about.”
