Wow!... Thanks for that! Actually, I'd heard of Sam Harris, but I don't think I'd ever read his works or even watched one of his lectures on YouTube. I mostly just knew of Dawkins. But man, this guy is great! He puts everything so simply, but with maximum punch to it. I'll definitely check out more stuff from him in the future! Thanks again!

ricky - I highly recommend you read his books. Letters to a Xian Nation is a fast read and then I suggest you read it again "as a student" trying to absorb the points.

Sam has a web-site whyere you can find much more.
