Even though we thank Sam Harris for turning over some tables in the temple, his comment below seems to stop a little short in way of expressing a specific solution, since it invites the need, to address a whole other set of questions. (important ones, no less)
Sam Harris-Rather than bring the full force of our creativity and rationality to bear on the problems of ethics, social cohesion, and even spiritual experience…
Few questions, to start.
1. Who are "the our?"
2. What about the subjectivity issue, concerning creativity?
3. Who has the final say, in what's accepted?
4. On what-who's base, is rationality defined?
5. On what-who's base, are ethics, defined?
You fine, intelligent posters, add to the list, as needed.
Curious, did that comment "catch" anyone else's attention?
