“Harris’ moral landscape is cratered with artillery and pock-marked with bullets.”

I’m glad someone else is paying attention to Sam Harris, because I just can’t. Too many years of wrestling with creationists has given me some nasty allergies to bad reasoning and arrogant codswallop. But at least Marcus Ranum has the spine to tear into Harris’s terrible arguments defending Israel’s atrocities. It’s long, but worth reading.

    “Arrogant Codswallop”, that will be the name of my next punk band.

    What an amazing read. Does exactly what they say. Put Sam’s entire argument on the dissecting table under bright lights. It gave me a sense of hope that hard problems can be dealt with over time.
