Sam Harris on the Young Turks

A solid 3 hours of Cenk Uygur arguing the nuances of atheism with Sam Harris is a real treat to behold.  I personally remain extremely critical of Harris's logic, especially in his refusal to see the Irish Troubles as compared with the Palestinian Nakba.  The reality is that the Irish Civil War and the British fragmentation of the former Ottoman Empire under the Sykes-Picot agreement were both generated in the confines of 10 Downing Street, by the same government, and the colonial reaction of the expeditionary forces, while varied by climate and geography, were both devised to accomplish the same goal, colonial hegemony within the British Empire.
