Sam Harris on TED

An amazing TED video by Sam Harris:



Finding an objective morality is something that I have been thinking about for quite some time. I am convinced that there is such a thing, but I reject entirely the idea that Christianity (and certainly Islam) has a lock on what it is. Large portions of Christian morality are, frankly, offensive to me. The search for right and wrong goes on.
