Personal Note to Sam Harris:

Dear Sam,

Some questions for you:

1) Regarding your article in the subject Newsweek, How do you think God who created you, should respond to your smirking at Him?

2) As a pro-choice believer, how about if your Mom had decided you weren’t really convenient for her at the time?

3) As an atheist what plans have you made when your conciousness leaves your physical body here on earth?

Yours Truly

Thanks for the info.  I thought this was his mode of communication with the public.

Yours Truly

Why would god who created Sam Harris make him so smart that he doesn’t need god?

The original poster clearly doesn’t need Sam’s actual response, because the voices in his head will suffice as usual.

Imaginary dialog is par for the course, is it not?

Exactly. It seems obvious that Curt Marshall is wasting his time posting on the samharris forum, or even directly e-mailing Sam Harris. Mr. Marshall, why not just tell God Himself that one of his human creatures, namely Sam Harris of Los Angeles, California, is not listening to all the voices in his head? I’m sure God has very efficient methods of taking care of such people.

Evidently Mr. Marshall believes not merely in an afterlife, but in a prelife. 

Mr. Marshall, a fetus is not a self-aware, concious human being;  there was no “Curt Marshall”  until your mother gave birth to you, and then you lived long long enough to learn language (since pre-linguistically, you couldn’t have known you were Curt Marshall.)

You are merely the product of an incredibly unlikely chain of events, and you did not exist until those events actually occurred. (For example, if another sperm had hit ground zero, the thing you call Curt Marshall might have been a female, or gay, or much shorter or much taller.  Or even much smarter.)

But if it makes you feel better that you (and Sam Harris) were just floating around in the ether waiting for a body to inhabit, the agent of god’s plan which could have been ruined if your mother aborted the thing that became you, go ahead.  But, be sure to keep the tin foil hat, because you never know!
