Wink Sam Harris: Master Debator
I love watching Sam Harris debate about religion and other hot topics. If you never heard of him he is an author, philosopher and neuroscientist. He has some great debates and sometimes I swear he is a comedian too. He debates about religion, how science can explain mortality, and free will. He has worked with many other scientist and atheist including Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins.

Here are some of his best arguments.

RE: Sam Harris: Master Debator
I very much enjoy listening to him speak and debate. His rebuttals are no Hitchslap by any means, but he gets his points across effectively and he is very well spoken.

I'm making my way through his book "The End of Faith[...]" right now.

Let me know how the book turns out, interested in reading it.

Many here are as good if not better than Harris.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

I've never heard about Sam Harris before for some reason! Watched the video here and I've really got to catch up on more of his. Can't believe I've never heard of him, probably have but never bothered to check his stuff out. What have I been missing!

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.

Every time I see the thread title, it looks to me like:

Sam Harris, masturbator.

Of course I feel rather drunk. Too bad I an not drinking.

I'm not drinking and kept thinking the same thing.
