Perhaps this means he'll discover whether he's been right or wrong all these years.
What i got from Hitchins was not so much a denial of eternal spiritual life, but a rejection of dumbed down theology intended to over simplify the truth and even mislead the masses. I had a classic Catholic seminary education through 4 years of Thomistic Philosophy and then two years of Systematic Theology and then a year in Jerusalem where I was supposed to be studying scripture and Hebrew, but actually spent all of my time at the Dead Sea Scroll research center in the late '70's. I liked that Hitchins had at least an appreciation and a thorough knowledge of those theological explanations, and that he and I came to very similar conclusions. Intelligent, conscious people see right through fabricated religions.
