Some things are so messed up that you just don’t know where to start.
Friends, I have on a few occasions mentioned that I read Sam Harris’ book ‘The Moral Landscape’ and rather enjoyed it.
I would have preferred if Harris had provided more argument or evidence in support of his point of view instead of simply stating it with a ‘come at me bro!’ attitude. But still, I felt there were many ideas in the book that were worth considering and he tackled the more ‘sciencey’ parts of it rather well.
But then I found out a few troubling things about our dear mister Harris.
And they have left me to convinced that he is a perfect example of what happens when intelligent people start commenting on things about which they are utterly ignorant.
