Sam Harris on abhramic god

It is taboo in our society to criticize a person's religious faith... these taboos are offensive, deeply unreasonable, but worse than that, they are getting people killed. This is really my concern.

I'm worried that our religious discourse- our religious beliefs are ultimately incompatible with civilization.

Either God can do nothing to stop catastrophes like this, or he doesn't care to, or he doesn’t exist. God is either impotent, evil, or imaginary. Take your pick, and choose wisely.

“How we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the character of our experience and, therefore, the quality of our lives. Mystics and contemplatives have made this claim for ages—but a growing body of scientific research now bears it out.”

Sam Harris on the present moment
