Sam Harris - Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

Christian Terrorism and Islamophobia

image

At certain points near the extremity of human evil it becomes difficult, and perhaps pointless, to make ethical distinctions. However, I cannot shake the feeling that detonating a large bomb in the center of a peaceful city with the intent of killing vast numbers of innocent people was the lesser of Anders Behring Breivik’s transgressions last week. It seems to me that it required greater malice, and even less…

The Science of Good and Evil (London, April 11th, 2011)

I am going down to London to go see Sam Harris in an Intelligence Squared debate the "reverand" Dr Giles Fraser, Canon Chancellor of St Paul's Cathedral on the topic of where do our ideas about morality and meaning come from?

 

The last time I went to one of these it was the now legendary Christopher Hitchens and Stephen Fry Vs Anne Widdecombe and Archbishop John…

MY TEAM COMES TO PLAY part thirty-six



Of course I would insist that any course on world religion or religion

in general have a section on atheists. It is clear that the atheist

community has something to say about a great many number of subjects.

Everything from climate change to fair…

Of a Salamander in Eden: The Obfuscatory Illogicalities of Doctor David Berlinski

One of the very few joys of chemotherapy, I’ve learned, is the opportunity it offers for catching up on one’s long-overdue reading. I usually take to the cancer ward as I call the infusion room at my clinic, a couple of “readers’” magazines, and until the antihistamine kicks in (added to the saline solution to ward off such complications of Treanda as flush and flashes of heat in the head, even difficulty…

Huffington Post joins “accommodationist viewpoint,” announces "religious section" exclusively edited by believers!

Glib title, “Announcing HuffPost Religion: Believers and Non-Believers Welcome,” proves untrue for Arriana Huffington and her flagship internet newspaper, the Huffington Post.



Arriana Huffington unwisely capitulates to the shrill stridency of the now quasi-theocratic America and announces a section dedicated solely to religion[1] without an offsetting voice for the non-theist’s… Continue

The Next ORIGIN: Synthetic Genomics / Bio-Engineering; Edge Master-Class, featuring George Church and Craig Venter.

Why Sam Harris is WRONG WRONG WRONG, Part 1

I'm splitting this blog into several parts in the interest in my getting *some* sleep at night. I think I should be able to maintain my logical flow from day to day, but I make no guarantees whatsoever.



First off, I would like to make it clear that my main objection with Sam Harris is not the intent of his book but the content, and the methodology. Speaking about how faith ends is not what atheists and the burgeoning athiestic community needs to be hearing right now. We've already… Continue
