The more I encounter Mr. Harris' work, the more amazing I find him to be. Everything he says and writes is so rational, lucid, and usually brilliant that I am often just stunned at the points he makes and the clarity with which he makes them.
The article was perfect. I wish I could up-rep Mr. Harris. Hell, I wish I could marry Mr. Harris. But he's spoken for and I'm straight so it would probably never work. But a guy can have dreams...
I'd say it is far from perfect. He plainly says that he is biased for weapons, so that right there should serve as a warning to the reader. It was far from perfect, and his inconsistency in logic is noticeable when it comes to his projection of statistics. Was it a good article? Maybe. Was it something that I should rep him up for? No. I much prefer his arguments against free will.
