    Thanks for the video. I just linked to it (with some questions) here.

    Another excellent offering. Thanks. This is the first I’ve seen of Sam Harris, though I’d heard a lot about him.

    He sure seems a lot more respectful than he’s been given credit for, I’m thinking. And of course he makes a very good point.
