Sam Harris delivers an hilarious rebuttal of metaphysical claims.

I hope that laughter was real and wasn't added in?  If so , way to go Harris!  I was literally laughing out loud myself there!

Ha ha - good one Mr. Harris.

I just love Harris's calm, straightforward application of analogy which makes the woo a laughing matter.  He's terrifying in a very different way from the Hitch, but just as terrifying, I think.

Thanks, Heather, great post (as usual)

This is the first video I saw of Harris & became an instant fan-boi. Watched the whole debate later
Comment by Robert Karp on May 29, 2011 at 8:03am
He does that a lot. The other video recently he used LOTR as a comparison. Thanks Heather!

I love another of his Elvis analogies, "If you believe that saying a few Latin words over your pancakes turns them into the body of Elvis you are crazy but if you believe the same thing about a wafer and the body of Jesus you are just Catholic."

I was a little Elvis today. I get a little Elvis whenever I do something dangerous or scary.

Hitchens was always my favorite of the group but the sublime and methodical tactics used by Harris are something to behold. The capacity to strip the pseudo-science from the argument of his opponent exposing the silliness from which it is derived is something Harris does so very well. Anyone have any videos on par with Johnathan Millers A brief history of disbelief?
