End of Faith

Post by Lausten » Tue Oct 04, 2016 11:49 pm

Sam Harris is reading his book, and adding comments and expanding on it, for free, on his podcast. It's completely brilliant. Around 1 hour 50 minutes, he talks about Pascal's wager and expands on what he said in the book, encapsulating ideas of argument from authority and of faith. This continues with other tangents, and some very good stuff on the same vein in the last 10 minutes. It should be required reading for anyone who comes to this forum, or any forum, or who opens their mouth at all and makes a belief claim.

He mentions somewhere, in one of the three chapters he has up so far, that his next book is about intellectual honesty. I'm looking forward to that.
