The Contradiction of Islam

Yes! This is an excellent video explaining the contradictions in Islam. And I love that this guy is an actual Arab, born and raised in a Muslim majority country. Muslim apologists cannot use claims of “racism” or “bigotry” against this guy. I hope to see more Arab atheists like Faisal Saeed Al Mutar in the future.

The thing that irritated me about this debate is Sam Harris starts by explaining how any criticism of Islam immediately gets conflated with bigotry toward Muslims as people. And what does Ben Affleck do? He immediately proves Sam’s point by pulling the “racism” card.

Here’s the deal. You cannot be racist against Islam because Islam is not a race. A religion is NOT a race. Religions consist of ideas and doctrines. And all ideas/doctrines should be open to criticism. The Quran, like the Bible, has many questionable/contradictory passages that I think are worthy of criticism: [Link]

This is all Sam and Bill are doing. They are criticizing the DOCTRINE of Islam. I’m a big fan of Sam Harris, so it annoyed me to see how many people online were labeling both him and Bill as “racists.” It’s ridiculous. (I’ll probably lose followers for this, but that’s okay.)

Sam Harris is a neuroscientist and author of the New York Times bestsellers, The End of Faith, Letter to a Christian Nation, and The Moral Landscape. His latest book “Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality without Religion” is available now.

Whenever Joe Rogan and Sam Harris get together, it’s always a fascinating conversation. (Podcast begins at 6:35.)

Bad Boy Bubby (1993)

Yo, this movie is bananas! It’s like a way more twisted, grimy, dirty, perverse version of Forrest Gump. And it also has this awesome “atheist” speech (referenced above), which I found hilarious! Watch it if you want to see a crazy, transgressive, and at the same time charming movie from Australia.
