Has there been any response to the article in the February 2008 American Atheist magazine by Meera Nanda that attacks (for lack of a better word) spirituality as expressed by Sam Harris in his book The End of Faith?

Thanks for the “prequel” as I did not realize this subject had been fully discussed 3 years ago.  I consider myself a hardcore atheist but I do believe in spirituality as expressed by Eckhart Tolle in his many books, in particular “A New Earth” and therefore would fully agree with Sam Harris.

Was it the same article?

These items do pop up now and then.

Yes, it was the very same article that was apparently re-published Feb, 2008 in American Atheist magazine.  While reading the article I had a paperback copy of EOF but could not follow page references listed, so I’m guessing the hardback version was different.
