Well done, Richard! Sometimes our self-respect just prohibits certain engagements.

I also look forward to seeing you not join Mr Craig in New York, London, Paris and San Francisco ... schedules permitting, of course.

Go to: Little girl in the audience and the Hitchens reading list

Stacy's Avatar Jump to comment 2 by Stacy

What a great thing to see someone so young and full of curiosity about the world, eager to read and learn and think for herself. Far better than many adults I have known. I expect she will forever remember her moment with Hitch and read everything on that list—and much more in the years to come.

Well done, Mason and Christopher.

Go to: Sam Harris: Religions Are Failed Sciences

Stacy's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by Stacy

I appreciate the many contributions of Sam, Richard, Hitchens and others in these important conversations going on now. As someone who was raised in a Christian family and indoctrinated early, I can attest to the value of reasoned voices in a world of superstitious teaching and anti-human doctrines.

I’ve decided to co-opt the term ‘born again’ for those of us who have been raised with religious nonsense and have chosen to think for ourselves and seek truth instead.

Also Sam, I enjoy your discussions of the benefits of meditative practice. I began meditating a couple of years ago and I agree with you that the transcendent experience need not be associated with supernaturalism or dogma. Regular meditation has brought many practical benefits to my experience and I can’t imagine living without it now.

Best wishes,

Stacy
