As I work on my book, I’ll be asking from time to time for readers to track stuff down for me—to be, as it were, my online assistants. (I’ll of course acknowledge the readership as a whole in the book, as it’s been very important in my thinking.)
So here’s an easy request: can you give me the page number for the following famous quotation from Hitchens’s God is Not Great (and check if the quote is accurate)? I’ll verify the citation later.
“What can be asserted without evidence can also be dismissed without evidence.”
Would that the faithful absorb that statement!
