One of my favorite Sam Harris videos....

Of course there are so many to choose from, but this is the first one that popped into my head.

Yes, you can construct a concept of the divine that is perfectly insulated from any means of rational or scientific inquiry, such as Jamie's idea of the Divine. But the God of Christianity is not such a concept. A God that creates the universe, manifests itself in the material world in the form of burning bushes and carpenters, and orders the slaughter of women and children demands just a tad more explanation (and an enormous amount of tortured "reasoning.") How anyone can claim the moral high ground and believe any of this crap still amazes me.

Anyway, enjoy the video (and disregard the silly title.)
