A clash between faith and reason?

Sam Harris
September 14, 2007
Author Sam Harris says the absolute nature of most religions serves as a dangerous and divisive force in society. Harris also argues that acts of altruism and goodness are not dependent upon a belief in God or an affiliation with religion. Sam Harris told why he believes religion poses a danger to modern societies in a July 4 speech at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
