This statement is quite accurate… it’s not possible for us to respect someone who hates us and would prefer to see us dead.
I was watching the Atheist Experience broadcast when this line was first spoken and it still rings true for me today.
If I could save a child from being raped, I would do it. If I could stop this brutal and inhumane act from occurring, I would step in immediately.
But the God everyone worships doesn’t stop children from being raped, which means your God is either:
A) A coward
B) Approves of children being raped
C) Doesn’t care
D) Doesn’t exist.
Which do you think is the right answer?
To be honest, I was hesitant to post this but it’s a special time for me.
January past marked two years since I released my first non-fiction book. While I love writing novels, I enjoyed writing non-fiction as well and it’s not surprising that my first non-fiction book was about Atheism.
The first picture above is the cover of my Atheist book titled Outspoken: Confessions of a Devout Atheist and while it hasn’t been a big bestseller, it has been selling copies all over the world and the feedback I’ve gotten has been positive. I’m very proud of this book, and the thought that it has provoked around the world.
This was one thing Ben didn’t seem to grasp.
Arguing the flaws of an organized religion is NOT RACISM.
Sam Harris is right; Islam is not a race, it’s a creed. And like all other creeds, Islam is fair game and is not immune to criticism.
Bill Maher was lucky to have Sam Harris there with him to fend off Affleck’s off key rants. To spread a little reason into the dialogue instead of replying to rant with a rant.
