Sam Harris is spot on. As I listened to ???The Moral Landscape???, I cannot help but think of the frustration that so many intelligent people throughout history have felt when confronted by the masses that refuse to listen to simple fact and reason. Whether trying to convince people that the world is round or that skin color does not matter, changing the minds of the majority has never been easy - or popular. Thankfully there are people like Sam who challenge us and aren't afraid to try to sail around the world.
Articulately written and well researched, Peter Boghossian breaks it down into its simplest terms. I only wish I would have benefited from his wisdom earlier in my life and broken free sooner. Highly recommend both for yourself and as a gift for friends.
The lecturer does a great job, covering a broad range of religions very effectively. His delivery is good, and he has just the right amount of passion to keep the listener interested without going overboard.
He takes each religion's beliefs at face value, without making any judgments.
I especially liked his lecture addressing exclusivism, inclusivism, and pluralism.
