“I can't recommend this book enough. It's the perfect compliment to Dawkins' The God Delusion and Hitchens' God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.
My only criticism is Harris' argument in defense of torture. He equates the harm done by torture with the collateral damage done by aerial bombing and suggests they are morally equivalent. This contradicts his earlier argument against Chomsky equating the Bush administration's killing of innocents and Saddam Hussein's crimes against humanity. Harris says the difference between Bush and Saddam Hussein is intent; Bush does not intend to harm innocents, Saddam Hussein does. This same logic should be applied to the United States' use of torture; there is clear intent to do harm and it is not morally equivalent to the inadvertent killing of innocents by bombing.”
