"When you consult the books, you do not find more reasons to be a moderate or a liberal. You find more reasons to be a fundamentalist."

Sam Harris, atheist and author of The End of Faith, on religious fundamentalism. Another provocative quote from the interview:
“I defy anyone to come forward with the evidence that puts the Biblical God or the Quranic God on fundamentally different footing than the gods of Mt. Olympus. There are historical reasons why Zeus is no longer worshiped and the God of Abraham is. But there are not sound epistemological or philosophical or empirical reasons.”
