Sam Harris: Science can answer moral questions

Here is Sam Harris’ talk he gave at TED very recently. I realized most of you have already seen it, but for the uninitiated, it’s a great presentation that deserves your attention. Because there are such great time constraints at these events, we unfortunately don’t get to hear everything about Sam’s ideas (why are you so harsh on time, TED!), but I’m looking forward to see how they develop, and I’m eager to read more in the coming future.

    Thanks for posting I always enjoy hearing Sam Harris speak he is so deliberate and careful in his speech and makes me rethink some of my atheist agenda with more compassion and understanding (and admitting of what I don’t understand).

    This was my first time hearing Harris speak. I simply love how he juxtaposes women in burkas and women in skimpy outdits by putting them on opposite ends of a moral spectrum for how we portray women in society. I found his style extremely thought provoking and nonchalantly aggressive. All in all, a great view. It would be a great resource for (aspiring/uninformed?) atheists to have a video section dedicated to, at the very least, the four horsemen of atheism.

    Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Jacob Fortin?

    Some one has to replace the old guys when they die, no?
