Sam Harris and Cenk Uygur Clear the Air on Religious Violence and Islam

This video is rather long but well worth watching. I watched it in chunks whenever I had time. Thirty minutes here, 20 minutes there and so on.

I found it interesting because I felt that Cenk really went hard at Sam Harris with fair questions and commentary. There were parts I disagreed with both Sam and Cenk, but unlike most interviews, the interviewer didn’t throw soft balls at the interviewee. I wish there were more interviews like this one.

So I thought I’d throw it up on my blog for the interested. Grab a bowl of popcorn and take it all in.

  1. I look forward to finding the time to watch this video, but it will have to wait until after the World Series is over. There are just some things that are two important than a three-hour debate on religion and atheism. But it is good to know that there were no soft balls thrown. I always appreciate a good pitchers’ dual.

  2. I listened to the first hour – – thank you for the recommendation. I’m impressed with Harris’ knowledge of the doctrines of other faiths. That is a project that is new to me in the past year, but it is bearing fruit.
