Sam Harris vs. Craig This was my favorite point sam used in the debate. This was edited only to remove the "Lord of the Rings" analogy. 2:15 is where the reference was.

The line, "This to me is the true horror of religion-- it allows perfectly decent and sane people to believe by the billions what only lunatics could believe on their own," hits with a gravity and force that is beyond most of any pragmatic revelations i've ever heard. Above any other quote i've read or heard, this one is paramount in its clarity, truth and eloquence.

What is this "Dr" quotation on Craig? He does have that title. You don't just sarcastically use it as if he wasn't one simply because you dislike his logic.

So Harris' claim is that God doesn't exist because of the pain and suffering we see throughout history. The question follows, then how do we instinctively know that these things are bad if there is no moral objective standard (i.e. God). If God truly doesn't exist and we're just evolved from something, at what point did it become an objective standard that human life is important and has value?

if I were in doctor Craig's place, I would've ran out of the room and never returned.

How dare Harris use his keen atheist wit and highly developed critical faculties to make extremely well-reasoned and decisive points that make God’s servant WLC look a bumbling buffoon. How dare Harris reveal God’s nature as the most unpleasant character in "history": jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. God is good: the bible says so. May God smite him down and send him to hell

Although Christopher Hitchens is my favorite of the so-called "Four Horseman" (which I've always found to be an odd name), it's my view that Sam Harris represents today's atheist best. He breaks the stereotype with his well-spoken, respectful, even-tempered and calm demeanor. Wish we had more of him.

9,000,000 dead children per year says it all. 3,000,000 men / women in USA prisons, mostly believers. Millions died in the Iran Iraq war. Millions died in the 30 year war. Thousands of children abused by priests. and the deity just watches and let it happen.
