"There is no Big Brother in the Sky"

There is NO evidence that a grand puppetmaster exists. There isn't an omniscient, supernatural being who watches our every move. We are not slaves to some overlord in some other dimension, being given rewards for good behavior or punishment for being bad. Hitchens is correct, it is absurd to think that some supernatural being can read our minds, police our thoughts, and then dole out punishments for those thoughts that are not to his liking.

I wouldn't be so disrespectful as to send this video to people first like many of the religious people I know are intentionally or unintentionally sending me religious stuff, but for every evangelizing and religious propaganda email I get, I feel like sending this video response in return. (Then would have to deal with their persecution complex afterwards from some who say I am being disrespectful, or that I am going to hell, or whatever they want to make up in frustration because I cannot believe as they do and sent them something with my point of view.)
