Sam Harris - We do not respect beliefs

"We do not respect people's beliefs, we evaluate their reasons. If my reasons are good enough for believing what I believe, you will helplessly believe what I believe. I will give you my reasons and reasons are contagious. That is what it is to be a rational human being." ~ Sam Harris

Beliefs should be kept to oneself, unless they are more than mere beliefs and can be proven.
