Sam Harris Answers His Critics

Truthdig has a great post by Sam Harris in which he responds to criticism from theists of his Atheist Manifesto. I consider this a must-read because Harris addresses three of the most often heard reactions of theists to atheism.

Since I'm commenting on Sam Harris, I'd like to take this opportunity to again plug his book, The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason. No freethinker should be without it, and it is the rare book which you will want everyone you know to read. I know it is on your to-read list and you've been meaning to get it for awhile. But since it is now available in paperback, you've run out of excuses.
