Harris V Prager

Sam Harris in another debate, this time with rabid weirdo Dennis Prager. The tenor, substance and argument of this debate differs greatly from the one with Andrew Sullivan. Whereas Sully and Harris was in good spirits, without rancor, and with a real desiret open a dialogue between two opposing positions, this is more or less an obliteration of Prager's nonsense by Harris.

My favourite quote so far...

Atheism does not assert that “it is all made by chance.” No one knows why the universe came into being. Most scientists readily admit their ignorance on this point. Religious believers do not. One of the extraordinary ironies of religious discourse can be seen in the frequency with which people of faith praise themselves for their humility, while condemning scientists and other nonbelievers for their intellectual arrogance."- Harris
