The End of Faith
The talk, presented by CFI-Metro New York and cosponsored by the New York Society for Ethical Culture, is the second in the 2005 - 2006 Voices of Reason series.
Sam Harris, who is currently completing a doctorate in neuroscience to research the neural foundation for belief, talked about his first book The End of Faith: Religion, Terror, and the Future of Reason, published in a new paperback edition by W.W. Norton and Company. Mr. Harris argued that religion played a major role in an increasingly dangerous world. He criticized the influence of religion in both the United States and across the Muslim world, saying that for peace to exist, reason must replace faith as the driving force in society. Following his remarks, Mr. Harris responded to questions and comments submitted by members of the audience. Ms. Jacoby moderated the program.
