An enjoyable speech given by Sam Harris can be found here. Sam follows his speech up with short Q&A session. The subject is familiar to those of you who’ve read his latest book, Letter to a Christian Nation. If you find Dawkins too aggressive, you may find Sam Harris to be more your style. It’s difficult to describe the differences in their approaches, you could perhaps sum it up as Dawkins appealing to your intellectual side, whilst Harris is after your understanding.
One of my favourite quotes:
I submit to you that there really is no society, in human history that has ever suffered because it’s population became too reasonable, too relucant to embrace dogma, or too demanding of evidence.
