Christopher Eric Hitchens was an Anglo-American author, columnist, essayist, orator, religious and literary critic, social critic, and journalist.
My responsion balances the, "without evidence" repeated within Christopher Hitchens's quote. "Evidently so", is hitch-side bias with a head nod and a little bit of missing Hitch through in for remembrance.
This responsion to Christopher Hitchens's, "materialist" claim is countered in the question, which asks whether or not the material parts of history borrow from Marxism?
