Doubt about evolution is merely a symptom of an underlying condition; the condition is faith itself – conviction without sufficient reason, hope mistaken for knowledge, bad ideas protectd from god ones, good ideas obscured by bad ones, wishful thinking elevated to a principle of salvation, etc.- Sam Harris The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human Values, p. 175.
Helpline Hattie: Actually, you wouldn’t make a very good atheist if you insisted that whatever the Darwinists say must be true. You’ve just made them into a religion, as Dawkins admitted he did.
Never mind God, why would anyone believe in Sam Harris? That’s what requires an explanation. 😉 )
