End of Faith by Sam Harris

The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of ReasonThe End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason by Sam Harris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Mainly focusing on the monotheistic faiths, Sam makes a compelling case for letting go of irrational beliefs in favour of rational ones.

However, it appears that (faith in) religion is evolving to a gentler, kinder sort and as long as it learns to incorporate the current state of knowledge (generally of the scientific kind rather than divinely inspired) it will continue to be a force for good in the world. We are already seeing some of the more liberal flavours of Christianity accept LGBT orientations as biological while others continue to accord them the death penalty. Guess which ones will survive?
