    I’m not at all, I wonder how you’d think I am? Harris has made many blunders; he’s not above criticism. I don’t think his mistakes have been accurately represented here, though, and more importantly, I don’t think he’s the malicious narcissist...

    Ad hominem, straw man, appeal to authority, false dichotomy. Have a splendid day

    There’s a reddit thread ‘proving’ the earth is flat - hardly a convincing argument. What you have done, though, is betray the fact that you’ll believe anything, no matter how flimsy, if it supports your preconceived opinion of something/someone...

    It’s fine, but I wanted to make that point anyway.

    I agree with you, and I believe Sam Harris would agree with you too. He’s not at all pro Murray, he’s just opposed to the pile-on that’s taken place recently. He critiques a lot of Murray’s work quite pointedly. Here’s a snippet of the general...

    This is a deplorable misrepresentation. Shame on you.

    What a shock, he was as hostile then as he is now, and as wrong too. The man is nothing if not consistent.

    Well said. Not even Ezra Klein, the man at the centre of our ‘friend’s’ fan fiction, would call Sam Harris racist... and I know this is true because he has literally said, in direct conversation with Sam, that he does not believe Sam is racist...

    Yes, he’s wrong, because none of that happened - at least not as he purports it to have happened. Forgive me for not elaborating, but I resent having to disprove the fanciful nonsense that has been spouted in here. If only such naively...

    You’re wrong, you’re angry, and your opinions are shit. Good day.

    Have I missed something? Harris, if I recall correctly, cares not one iota about race with respect to IQ. His crime seems to have been hosting Murray on his podcast - does that constitute racism in your book?
  • jungledrums replied to the thread Peterson, Harris, etc.....
    Having exposed yourself to his work, do you really think Sam Harris has ever intended to be racist? You don’t seem to like the man, I get it, but I don’t know how anyone could fairly accuse him of racism... unless you think critiquing Islam...

    Racist? Crazy? I completely disagree with that assessment.
  • jungledrums replied to the thread Peterson, Harris, etc.....
    Ah okay, thanks.

    @Halftrack perhaps I’ve missed the clear and obvious islamophobia. He’s fairly open in his criticism of most religions, and is at pains to distinguish between criticism of Islam as a religion, versus criticism of innocent muslims. I’d also add...
