01) How Sam Harris Beats Quacks Every Time (The Harris Method)


“Sam Harris has dealt with countless quacks in his career, but Deepak Chopra might have been the biggest one of all. Even with Michael Shermer there to help, Deepak was difficult to pin down, much less debate. Harris applied his signature, efficient and cool-headed approach to the discussion. Outside of this event, these debate practices can be observed in footage from the Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson talks in Vancouver and Dublin, on the Waking Up podcast, on the Joe Rogan Experience, and throughout his speaking career.

Sam knows how pseudoscience preaching quacks manipulate their audiences, evade criticism, and recruit followers. So, he rarely misses a beat in taking them down, whether the topic is quantum healing, alternative medicine, religion, or mysticism.”

01) Does Humanity Still Believe in Magic?


“As far as science and technology goes, the 21st century is an exciting time to be alive. We are curing more and more diseases. We are developing better and better space travel. Some see these advances as evidence that religion and magic are losing their influence on society. Magic especially has been viewed as a debunked “proto-science” with little credibility in modernity. But sociological data suggests that many humans still practice and believe in magic.”

01) What Atheists ACTUALLY Get Wrong About Christianity


“I’m an atheist who constantly criticizes Christianity, but I’ve got to voice some criticisms of the ideas that some atheists have about Christianity and religion in general. Don’t worry, I’m not espousing cultural Christianity or defending “Judaeo-Christian values” like Jordan Peterson or Ben Shapiro. I just want our criticisms to be as effective as possible. Hopefully no one takes the positions I criticize here as representative of what atheists believe in general.

Let’s stop needlessly arguing over theology when we have secular scholarship at our fingertips.”
