Well said.

And having said that, and of course with my own presuppositions, I sure take people like Christopher Hitchens to be EXCEEDINGLY arrogant!

Can I do that? Or am I pre-conditioned to think all evangelical atheists will simply be that way all the time?

Not quite Van Til going mainstream ...

Philosophers (unlike scientists) have pretty much all come to accept the social nature of knowledge, but this hasn't made them into Van Tilians. Instead, they largely believe that there isn't one true Transcendental at the core.

Van Til was attempting to DESCRIBE reality with the realization that there are no uninterpreted facts. Most modern philosophers accept the notion that there are no uninterpreted facts and draw the conclusion that each individual CREATES its own reality.

These are radically different positions.
