Recensione

"I dare you to read this book... it will not leave you unchanged. Read it if it is the last thing you do" (Richard Dawkins)

"Sam Harris's elegant little book is the most refreshing and wonderful source of ammunition for those who, like me, hold to no religious doctrine... Read it and form your own view, but do not ignore its message" (Roger Penrose)

"Sam Harris is a brave, intelligent, clear-sighted author whose brilliant essay should be read by every adult who has ever believed that a religious faith can solve the world's problems" (Desmond Morris)

"Harris and (Richard) Dawkins both share a wonderfully refreshing refusal to parse their language into more saccharine statements... Guaranteed to enrage all but the most delusional theist" (Irish Independent)

"Harris picks apart the very seams of Christian belief in such a convincing fashion that any shred of belief I had has now been obliterated. This is a good thing. We only get one life - why waste one minute of it on mumbo jumbo" (London Lite)

5.0 su 5 stelle The worst part of all of this 7 settembre 2016
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Every American should read this book. A frighteningly large portion of the U.S. population still places its "faith" in ancient texts which clearly were not written by the creator of the universe, and furthermore are filled to the brim with violence, hatred, misogyny, intolerance and bigotry. The worst part of all of this, however, is that many of these unscientific and truly dangerous beliefs are being forced into the classroom and into our public policy. When creationism is still allowed to be taught to children instead of evolution in 2016, and opposition to stem cell research and other potentially-hugely-beneficial scientific enterprises persists not only by vast numbers of the general population but by our elected politicians in every branch of government, we have a HUGE problem. The prevailing and unquestioned status of religion in America today is truly shocking, terrifying, and completely absurd. Sam Harris is a gifted thinker, speaker and writer, and eloquently and succinctly covers all of the important topics on the status of religious belief in America in the modern age. This book is only about 100 pages; it is clear, easy and fun to read, as each section is essentially a brief outlining/summary of the issues at hand. For a much more in-depth look at the history, problems with and possible solutions/alternatives to the world's major religions, see Sam's book "The End of Faith," another magnificent deconstruction and analysis of the biggest problems of religious faith and of the institutions of religion itself. We are in a state of emergency; these are globally emerging and threatening issues. We have to start being able to talk about these things rationally, and on a massive scale. It happens one person at a time. Thank 'god' for Sam Harris. The world surely needs him and more like him right now.

The frightening truth that is revealed in this book by Sam Harris confirmed my fears about the dangers of 7th century religious superstitions combined with modern day weapons of mass destruction.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Necessary Commentary 13 maggio 2012
Di DH,ESQ. - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
In "Letter to a Christian Nation," author Sam Harris provides the reader with the most common arguments made in defense of religion, specifically Christianity, with rebuttals to those arguments. Harris approaches arguments in favor of Christianity from two perspectives: those who argue that the claims of Christianity are true, and those who argue that Christianity is useful even if its claims are false. Harris uses this dichotomy to show how Christianity is impeding progress in international peace, directing social and scientific policy, and providing cover for political correctness. Harris argues that those who are opposed to religion must speak out in defense of rationality and against the use of dogmatic beliefs to drive policy making.

"Letter to a Christian Nation," Harris' second work, is a necessary diatribe in defense of rationalism. Most importantly, Harris writes that those who share his adherence to rationalism should change the national conversation to show that claims about the supernatural are not worthy of respect, and should be treated as any other baseless claim would be treated.

5.0 su 5 stelle Reason vs Regression 24 aprile 2013
Di R. Childers - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Nothing Harris says surprises me. I have had the same basic thoughts. However his book is very refreshing and encouraging. I am elated to know that in some parts of this country there are still truly progressive thinkers. But I live in the Bible Belt and sometimes I think I'm all alone here. My father, also a free thinker, died in 1987.

For progressives, it is akin to living in the Dark Ages when the people who surround you all believe in the equivalent of Santa Claus. Of course it's no coincidence that children are indoctrinated into Christianity by first using such a figure with which they can identify and gradually be weaned off in favor of the real religious icon. It starts early.

What bothers me is the negative, disastrous and often times violent consequence that religious extremism has on us and every cohabitant species on our planet. And that we have often times, in this country, elect unqualified men and women on the basis of their perceived religious participation. There are practical concerns for worry. Ronald Reagan, for instance, allowed Nancy to consult with psychics on matters of national policy. The religious right consistently hobbles this nation by directing it's minion to elect inferior politicians strictly on their obedience on matters which favor their demented world view.

Furthermore, if we are ever going to achieve a greater understanding of this wondrous universe in which we live, and ourselves, we must first ameliorate the grinding social and political issues of our time that now handicap civilization, and then appropriate generous funding for exploration of the cosmos. We are derelict in our duty to do that. It has been a long time. We were motivated in the mid twentieth century, although mostly politically, to venture farther and learn more about our place in the universe, but now we must be motivated by more than politics and novelty. We must develop an appetite to understand who and what we really are, myth notwithstanding.

People who put these kinds of society altering thoughts on paper and publish them are doing humanity more potential good than all the gods and demons ever created in mankinds adolescent brain.

5.0 su 5 stelle This book could've been written by my thoughtsu 5 marzo 2017
Di Genasus - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I'm not religious and have no faith. I list those as two separate things on purpose. I'm uneducated in any bible. So as a person with fresh eyes I am appalled and have preached on exactly everything he points out. The bible passages that he uses I'd never heard of and can't describe my level of disbelief or abhorrence. I've never understood why, as a devout Christian, they pick and choose parts of their religion or book of faith that best suit then to follow our condemn others. If I were a God this would piss me off. They pick and choose what parts of the bible, such as selling your daughter or killing her, that aren't practiced anymore. I don't advocate one luck of the bible, but my point is still the same.

I hope religion ends. I don't care if you have faith; the deep, personal relationship with a God in your mind, but I do hope religion dies and never, ever comes back. Then I feel like we can truly see what the world and human population is capable of. Then maybe we can truly heal those sick with our amazing efforts in medicine and not in prayer. Then maybe billions of women will stop suffering at the hands of religion. Maybe genocide and slavery will stop being permissible and even required.

I hope it ends so we can really see our true evolutionary potential.
