Epistemological black holes… draining the light from our world

Sam Harris’s The End of Faith is that rarest of things – a well evidenced, highly informed and thoroughly researched piece of academic writing that is nonetheless emotionally charged, opinionated, uncompromising and unforgiving.
He is particularly strong on undermining the idea that religious moderates are any less damaging to this world than their more extreme brethren, or that acts of cruelty performed on behalf of or in the name of GOD can in any way continue to be marginalised as being the responsibility of the perpetrator alone – that his/her faith is somehow a thing apart from their dark actions.
