For some reason I had a lot more trouble getting through this one than his last two. Took me three times, but I'm glad I stuck it out. The last section about being inside a simulation was pure delightful mental bubble gum. All in all, the concepts we...more

The End of Faith by Sam Harris

Hmm. Well, okay. I learned a few things from this book. I started it as an atheist and I needed no convincing that faith causes much more damage than good and deserves no special reverence. So I suppose that makes me the choir that Sam was preaching...more
-uht! is on page 250 of 348 of The End of Faith: The book is just interesting enough to get me past how much of a douche Sam Harris comes off as. Which is saying it's very interesting. And he's very douchey.

“I want an avowed atheist in the White House. When time comes to push that button, I want whoever's making the decision to understand that once it's pushed, it's over. Finito. They're not gonna have lunch with Jesus. Won't be deflowering 72 virgins on the great shag carpet of eternity, or reincarnated as a cow. I want someone making that decision who believes life on this Earth isn't just a dress rehearsal for something better -- but the only shot we get.”
