    Possibly one of the worst proponents of scientism. Can imagine him shouting “oh my science” when he spills a glass of water. Only reason he is not a Redditor is he is at least consistent enough in his atheism to hate Muslims as much as Christians.

        He thinks he has an answer to this. He pictures muslims as hiding behind human shields to carry out the terrorist attacks while sees israel protecting their interests the conventional way.

        It was a long time ago since I heard him talk about this on a podcast but the general idea is something like that.

      Exactly this. Infact, this makes him extremely dangerous, since he's clearly quite intelligent and very well spoken, so people tend to take him at his word. Since he's actually completely retarded at his core, he is in effect a trojan horse destroying important debates and diminishing critical thinking across the population.

        Please elaborate, I've been listening to his podcasts for a while and I found some interesting insights, I also enjoy how he's not afraid of btfoing Islam, but I'm always curious to have read controversial takes on thinkers.

          It's not because that he isn't religious, it's that he isn't religious yet is a Buddhist. It's like a guy growing out of his Baptist community yet polices other people based on his own set of morality.

    He's correct on how the belief for God is a thing of the past but then he doubles down his stupidity of insisting on 'spirituality without God' and how Buddhism isn't a religion.

      I mean, he's kind of right isn't he? Buddhism can be practiced without becoming a Buddhist, the issue with religions is how they exert control over individuals and nihilistic morals, whereas Buddhism teaches a state of mind I suppose, it's like a healthy spiritualism that doesn't require you to believe in a given metaphysical framework of the world, or authoritative figures, but rather is self-virtues.

        What does spirituality without religion actually mean? What's the difference to psychology? It seems to me that all the positive effects of meditation could be called psychological.

        This is what sophist retards actually believe. Harris is just another gnomish demoralization agent trying to alienate the West from it's spiritual heritage by hawking effete eastern spirituality to keep the people docile.

        not trying to be "that guy" but the west's cultural heritage is pagan and long since gone, Christianity came from the middle east at a time when almost everyone was gnomish. So if your looking for someone to say "its garden gnomes from the top on down" for w/e reason, you would be correct.

          Christianity was born in the Empire and spread almost entirely by Greeks, and there was never any unified "West" before the Church. garden gnomes have used pagans to attack the Church since the time of Julian the Apostate.

            So? Jesus and his disciples were gnomish attempting to reform the church, Christianity was originally intended to be a reform of Judaism.

              They weren't "gnomish" in the sense you're trying to convey. Modern garden gnomes are Edmoite pagans. They weren't trying to "reform" anything. They were fulfilling the original covenant. The garden gnomes have been trying to diminish Christ by pretending he was just a gnomish reformer, and you bought it.

                first of all
                >Modern garden gnomes are Edmoite pagans
                wrong, modern garden gnomes are a reform sect of orthodox garden gnomes (who may or may not be Edomites I don't know) who stripped out all of the mythical parts of their religion. So yes the modern garden gnomes are nothing like the garden gnomes back then, but they are also not Edmoite pagans

                >They weren't trying to "reform" anything. They were fulfilling the original covenant.
                yes, that is generally what we call a reform, especially if the organization resists it.

                >The garden gnomes have been trying to diminish Christ by pretending he was just a gnomish reformer, and you bought it.
                sure maybe they tried to do that like thousands of years after all this happened, but literally Jesus and his followers were seeking to transform the church from within they had no concept at the time of splitting off and forming their own religion. As for the buying into it stuff, all I can say is I thank god daily i'm not as delusional as you are.

                And Orthodox garden gnomes are Edomites practicing Babylonian witchcraft. They are not racially nor religiously continuous with the people of the Old Testament

                >yes, that is generally what we call a reform, especially if the organization resists it.
                Jesus wasn't Trying to "reform" the Pharisees. He denounced them as vipers and imposters.

                >Jesus and his followers were seeking to transform the church from within they had no concept at the time of splitting off and forming their own religion
                Why do you keep conflating "the church" with the flase gnomish religion that propped up after the exile? You've literally fallen for gnomish tricks. Christ wanted to fulfill the true covenant which became the Chrurch, not reform the false pagan gnomish religion of the pharisees.

                because its easier to say than w/e you want me to say, its just a generic term you schizoid.

                As far as our talk goes, i either don't know enough or your just gonna keep schizo posting at me so i'm gonna go read about it for now
