In This Sam Harris Keynote Video, He Discusses the Term 'Religion'

Sam Harris is an American neuroscientist and author of such books as 'The End of Faith' and 'Letter to a Christian Nation.'

In this intriguing Sam Harris Keynote Video, he discusses the misleading nature of the term religion, which he argues covers too broad a range of practices and fascinations. Harris points out that the spectrum of religious doctrine spans from a faith based on total non-violence on one end, to a religion with an explicit holy war doctrine at the other.

Harris explains his view of religions as that of failed sciences, as they stem from a time when all causes in the universe were unknown, and argues that eventually, religion will entirely lose the argument, ethically and spiritually. Stats for Faith as a Failed Science Trending: Older & Chilly
