    In ?The End of Faith?, Sam Harris delivers a startling analysis of the clash between reason and religion in the modern world. He offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs even when these beliefs inspire the worst human atrocities. While warning against the encroachment of organized religion into world politics, Harris draws on insights from neuroscience, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism to deliver a call for a truly modern foundation for ethics and spirituality that ...

Muy triste

by Reynaldo M on Apr 14, 2011

Si, es muy triste saber ya en los 40 aŅos de edad, que hay mucha verdad fuera de los asuntos religiosos, que pocos sabran alguna vez. Estoy sorprendido por lo mucho que las ideas de Harris, se parecen a las que yo desde hace muchos aņos me vengo haciendo. Es un alivio saber que uno no esta solo en estos asuntos. Que pena que para el mundo hispano no llegue ni la mitad de estas ideas.

Many Unfounded Statements!

by Evarist K on Mar 13, 2011

The book has false information in some parts but the problem is that Sam seems to claim to be an authority or at times takes for granted the authority of the people he quotes. How I wish there was a way to exchange with him for a rebuttle!

So he doesn't believe in "God":

by Bruno1953 on May 26, 2010

And what else is new here? Nothing. However I wish that was it. The author, probably living in an "ivory tower" of total disconection with the real world, proposes "all religions be eliminated". Or at least that is what he is saying or I am understanding it. I agree that religions have committed mistakes, wars and crimes. However, not all religious believes are that "evil", and not all wars were committed by religious beliefs. To say "eliminate religions and the world will be in peace" sounds to me wishful thinking and childish. Evil goes much farther away from religions and Mr. Harris should know better, but it look like he doesn't. And the book is too insulting toward Islam's followers. This book is bigoted and prejudiced toward people of any religious persuasions. And only an "idiot" thinks we can get rid of them "permanently". That, Mr. Harris, is not going to happen. Thanks!

great

by brotimg on Oct 9, 2008

this book is a must-read for all people who want to change the world. people like myself who know that peoples religious beliefs are based on erroneous assumptions are given badly-needed facts to counter believers. harris makes the case that the power of these beliefs are responsible for millions of deaths in the past and will be responsible for millions more until they have lost their motivational strength. we need a new way of interpreting scripture(s).

I'm A Believer

by llomonte on Oct 14, 2007

Sam Harris presents awe-inspiring information as to how Christians, Muslims, Jews, & other believers have been tricked for centuries into believing in a higher power. The heavily annotated book really opened my eyes & helped me realize that I am a believer in those things confirmed by reason & scientific evidence. This is my sole reference tool to justify my atheism. The facts speak for themselves.

An "anti-religious" zealot?

Though Sam Harris has some valid points, he becomes so fanatical in his diatribe against religion that he quickly loses credibility. I'm not certain that "anti-religious" zealots are any more sane than religious zealots. If some religion doesn't bring him peace, perhaps therapy might help.
