The Challenge to Religious Dogma that has Sparked a National Debate!

"Forty-four percent of the American population is convinced that Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead sometime in the next fifty years," writes Sam Harris. "Imagine the consequences if any significant component of the U.S. government actually believed that the world was about to end and that its ending would be glorious. The fact that nearly half of the American population apparently believes this, purely on the basis of religious dogma, should be considered a moral and intellectual emergency."

In response to his award-winning bestseller The End of Faith, Sam Harris received thousands of letters from Christians excoriating him for not believing in God. Letter to A Christian Nation is his courageous and controversial reply. Using rational argument, Harris offers a measured refutation of the beliefs that form the core of fundamentalist Christianity. Addressing current topics ranging from intelligent design and stem-cell research to the connections between religion and violence, Letter to a Christian Nation boldly challenges the influence that faith has on public life in our nation.

You can't argue with his logic...

Unless you have none of your own.
Harris is more than fair to believers -- and he is clear and concise in his writing.

Simply Brilliant.

Calls 'em to the Carpet

Sam Harris is only considered extreme because of his willingness to call out the fallacies and contridictions of the Christian faith. He expertly and methodically disassembles his Christian critics with logic, which apparently just seems to further enrage them. If you have an open mind, you might give his arguements valid consideration. If you are a "true believer" nobody, let alone San Harris, will convince you otherwise.
