The Problem with Atheism by Sam Harris

I’ve been a quiet non-believerfor most of my adult life–grew up a devout Catholic–but have always felt uncomfortable with the term “atheist.” I never liked the idea of representing my beliefs by a term that describes what I don’t believe in. The term “atheist” feels nihilistic and negative, and does not describe what I believe in (secular humanism, rationalism, skepticism, speciesist?). Sam Harris’ speech captures this issue perfectly. It’s long, but worth every minute.

I hope you enjoy the read as much as I did:

btw: I read Sam Harris’s “Letter to a Christian Nation” and “End of Faith” and thoroughly enjoyed both reads.
