Sam Harris destroys the 'dangerous imbecile' Trump


Recommended Posts

Who is Sam Harris? No one cares what that nobody thinks.

 

 

That you don't know who he is says more about you than him.

 

 

 

Samuel Benjamin "Sam" Harris (born April 9, 1967) is an American author, philosopher, and neuroscientist. He is the co-founder and chief executive of Project Reason, a non-profit organization that promotes science and secularism, and host of the podcast Waking Up with Sam Harris. His book The End of Faith (2004), a critique of organized religion, appeared on The New York Times Best Seller list for 33 weeks and also won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for First Nonfiction in 2005. Letter to a Christian Nation (2006) was a response to criticism of The End of Faith. In The Moral Landscape (2010), Harris argues that science can help answer moral problems and aid human well-being. He subsequently published a long-form essay Lying in 2011, the short bookFree Will in 2012, Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion in 2014 and, with British activist Maajid Nawaz, Islam and the Future of Tolerance: A Dialogue in 2015.

Harris is considered a member of the "Four Horsemen of New Atheism," alongside Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, and the late Christopher Hitchens. He is an advocate of separation of church and state, critic of religion, and proponent of the liberty to criticize it. He has praised Advaita Vedanta and Dzogchen, however, as "they contain empirical insights about the nature of consciousness that do not depend upon faith." Harris' writings on religion have drawn both praise and criticism.

Harris has written articles for The Huffington Post, Los Angeles Times, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Newsweek, and the scientific journal Nature. His articles discuss topics including religion, morality, neuroscience, free will, terrorism, and self-defense. He regularly gives talks around the United States and the United Kingdom, including a speech at TED, where he outlined the arguments made in his book The Moral Landscape. Harris has made numerous television appearances, including interviews for Nightline, Real Time with Bill Maher, The O'Reilly Factor, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and The Last Word, among others. He has also appeared in the documentary films The God Who Wasn't There (2005) and The Unbelievers (2013).

"It seems to me that there's something wrong with his mind..."

 

"this man who speaks at the level of a fourth grader, and then mostly about himself, and most of what he says is a lie!"

 

"his lack of qualification is married to an egocentrism like we've never seen!"

 

SO F-ING TRUE!!!

 

Sam Harris nailed it!

He's eloquent in his description of Trump. But you don't need him to know that Trump is dumb and full of shit

The debate of God, existentialism, quantum physics, etc... between Harris and Chopra, is also quite intriguing...

 

 

He makes Chopra look like an idiot, and he is. You should check out the Ted Talk about AI. Sam's friend, Elon Musk, invited him to a private AI conference a couple of years ago because he knows Harris is the most articulate advocate of reason today. He is not just an excellent orator, but his intelligence gives weight to what he says. I have been reading his books and following his lectures for years. I think he is being positioned to be the spokesman for science, reason, and secular humanism by major tech companies.

I respected what Harris was emphasizing, but Chopra's not a bullshit artist, he's about increasing peoples hope and self-worth, he's a motivator. I found Harris to be quite unnecessarily insulting towards Chopra...

 

When discussing the God gene,or God's existence or inexistence, its uncalled for to say someone should be embarassed for believing in higher power.The God Chopra promotes is the God within us, whatever you care to term it. There is nothing wrong with promoting hope, praying, or taking comfort in the belief of God or higher power. Chopra is not a charlatan, and he does not promote 'woo-woo', or 'jargon', he is a spiritual motivator.

 

I highly respected both Harris and Chopras perspectives, but found Harris to be unfairly condenscending towards Chopra. Deepak Chopra is not attempting to fool anyone, he is a spiritual motivator in the Hindu/Buddhist traditions...

 

A deplorable charlatan/liar/scumbag like Donald Trump could never grasp a word of any of this...
