Hitchens on heaven:

"When I was in prep school, I used to wonder what heaven would be like if it really did consist of everlasting praise. Sounded like hell to me. But I couldn't picture it. Nobody can, of course. But I've seen the closest approximate to it, which is North Korea. ...

But at least you can fucking die and leave North Korea. ... Now I say freely, non serviam. I don't want that, and I don't respect anyone who does. ... What a good thing it is that there is no evidence at all for such an obscene proposition."
