Unread post

Quote:Should reasonable atheists tolerate fanatics like Sam Harris?Great question. I think we must tolerate ALL people offering up critical opinion but we also must respond with critique and critcism to arguements that do not add up. Most factions are very bad about not "managing" fanatical opinion, it is usually a "you are either with us or against us" mentality. Sam Harris is an Atheist but does not represent the opinion of most Atheists and I think that is worth stating just as Islamic Terrorists do not represent the opinions of the majority of followers of Islam (ironically enough).
