Sam Harris: Science Must Destroy Religion

The Blog | Sam Harris: Science Must Destroy Religion | The Huffington Post

Sam Harris has a new post up on The Huffington Post, and it is a good one. I think the issue of religious tolerance is a very important and yet extremely complicated one. Harris is right to point out that we nonbelievers often shy away from criticizing religion in the name of tolerance. He is also correct that this simply allows religious lunacy to continue its maladaptive reign. I guess the problem is that it is hard to imagine that the alternative would be successful and easy to imagine it resulting in bodily harm. I plan to discuss this more very soon, but for now, go read his post.
