    Affleck ticked all the boxes of the modern liberal who has hijacked every liberal principle. He sulks, he doesn't listen to the opposing point of view, and when he is losing the argument all he can do is yell "racist" at the other person.

    I think Afleck was trying to big himself up as the great liberal saviour at the expense of Sam Harris. You cannot be racist against a belief system simply because it is not a race . Maybe someone should explain that much at least to Afleck . I had the impression he thinks he is much more important than he actually is . Ironically it was not that long ago when actors were afforded the same station as jugglers or the court jester . The court jester sounds appropriate and I admired Sam Harris for remaining so dignified when attacked by that clown.

    Sam Harris and Bill Maher are conflating criticism of the doctrine of Islam with the criticism of the muslim as people. Those two things are connected anyway. There are differences inside the different beliefs throughout the Muslim communities. Practise as in what people are doing and the social context are even more important. The American media should talk about sociological and religious characteristics of societies in the muslim world with greater sense of accuracy and finesse.

    I was a big fan of Sam Harris until I read his background very carefully. He appears as a naturally gifted intellectual and scientist who speaks about deep philosophical issue with ease. But the description closer to the truth is that he is a rich kid who spent his money on books and cultivating an image. His neuroscience PhD is simplistic by neuroscience standards - studying religious differences manifest as physical differences. His paper on the topic was selected as one of the most poor usage of methodologies in the year it was published.

    But the slick talking intellectual presses on. In his email exchange with Noam Chomsky, he looks like an annoying fanboy eager to get a photo with his idol, while putting up two fingers behind his head. He repeatedly insults and patronizes Chomsky, a man who has demonstrated more intellectual chops several times over. And that's coming from someone diametrically opposed to Chomsky's political views.

    Harris shows his intelligence. He is both dignified here and in that Affleck debate. The gentleman holds himself really well, even if you disagree with his views, as I do slightly, you have to respect the man for his comportment. The way he debates, encourages dialogue. Affleck lost his composure and that sort of hot-headed hostility can destroy debate and productive discussions. This potentially could polarise people further which is counter-intuitive.

    Let's look at a Pew pole that surveyed how many Muslims in majority Muslim countries support stoning adulterers. We will look at Nigeria, Egypt, Turkey, Indonesia, and Pakistan.

    Turkey: 16 percent
    Egypt: 82 percent
    Indonesia: 42 percent
    Pakistan: 82 percent
    Nigeria: 56 percent

    Turkey: 11 million
    Egypt: 68 million
    Indonesia: 96 million
    Pakistan: 150 million
    Nigeria: 52 million

    This adds up to over 375 million people. I rounded down every time and even chose more moderate countries like Turkey and Indonesia. 375 million makes up over 20 percent of ALL Muslims and this is only FIVE FUCKING COUNTRIES. I did not include India, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Algeria, Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, etc. Not to mention that most of the people surveyed were probably city dwellers and the rural populations are much more extreme. It takes 10 minutes to disprove this myth. I am not denying the existence of moderate Muslims, but these numbers are very disturbing.

  • James Riffe

    It blows my mind that people don't understand what he is trying to say. They automatically shut down, don't listen, & just start name calling while spewing out their opinions. He is talking about the ideology itself & the flaws within that ideology.

    What has happened to liberals? I use to agree with them a lot more on a lot of things but they have completely turned bat shit crazy & it's almost as if they have lost brain cells. They take almost everything out of context, shut down & make their interpretation match their argument, all the while they think they are never wrong. Conversations are not a thing anymore, they don't try to understand what that person is saying. Thoughts are independent & you have to treat it as so, not group that thought with a way you think a certain group thinks.

    What's interesting to me about the argument between batman and sam harris/bill maher is that it was an argument between someone with a degree from Brown, someone with a degree from Cornell with a double major in English and History, and someone with a degree in philosophy from Stanford and a PhD in neurosciences from UCLA. Of course assflecks is an honorary degree from Brown. The idiot vs. the intelligent.

    Ben the actor is like a confused and angry 5yr old. I cant understand why actors are consulted for their political and religious imput, as if they're some morally and or educationally superior person the public should look up to and respect. At one time actors were highly trained and talented people, only now the vast majority are nothing more than a pretty face, complimented with CGI and as many takes and edits than a cocaine addicted dyslexic with Tourette's.

    I see Sam misunderstood in many forums and I find that odd since he is so intellectually clear and willing to "unpack" any subject. He gives so much dignity to free thinking in the world and works so hard to this end, I hate to see him melighned in this way.

  • Corina Amato

    Sam makes a statement. Then Ben counters some stupidity and they argue that Sam's position is the opposite of what he actually stated. Against ideas, not people. Then Ben doesn't understand Sam's position and when Sam points this out, Ben takes it as arrogance on Sam's part but Ben is speaking from ignorance.

    I am genuinely confused by this. Sam harris introduced race into the debate, Affleck, who I'm not a fan of said, after the introduction of the race element, that what Harris was saying was racist. Both Harris and the host made claims of evidence that they did not back up because they cannot be backed up, but Affleck is the dumb

    I will never understand why people listen to Hollywood stars and take their opinions seriously.

Most are low educated people who don't have the time or inclination to educate themselves. So why listen to morons who don't know what they are saying for your own deliberations? Because they are famous? Not a good reason.

They are called "extremists", not Muslim. Saying 90 percent of Muslims are anti America, is just wrong. The people with the loudest voices, over there, are extremists. A lot of Muslims just want to live their lives. You can have problems with their views on equal rights or LGBT issues, but it wasn't long ago white people did barbaric things to honor their God. Every religion has it's problems. But lumping everyone together, as a threat, is truly gross & disgusting.

  • Faris A

    Here's why Sam Harris is actually a bad philosopher and academic. He got his PhD studying CAT scans on the brain state of religious and non-relgious people. You can look it up. Evidently, all of his conclusions were proven false. Now that's actually not that bad for neuroscience. However, Sam's problem is that every part of his methodology was shoddy and he hasn't tried to improve any part of it. He has contributed nothing to the field in a decade. Now he mostly just uses "neuroscientist" as a label to give himself more authority.

    Harris never tries to engage in Literary texts, in an academic sense; he simply draws up stawman fallacies and claims them to be true.

    Any respecteble academic would probably tell you that Harris's a sharleton that has gone mainstream. He's lazy and even says it in his books: "Many of my critics fault me for not engaging more directly with the academic literature on moral philosophy ... [but] I am convinced that every appearance of terms like ‘metaethics,’ ‘deontology,’ ‘noncognitivism,’ ‘antirealism,’ ‘emotivism,’ etc. directly increases the amount of boredom in the universe".

    He is considered a bad philosopher because of his arguments and not because of the philosophical positions he espouses. There are many utilitarians, naturalists, realists, atheists, determinists, and so on, but they are distinguished from Sam Harris by their rigorous arguments and exploration of novel issues. You can Google reviews of Harris's books by prominent athiest philosophers such as Daniel Dennett, Simon Blackburn, and Kwame Anthony Appiah to get a sense of what professionals think of his work.

    Lol at Rubin referring to affleck as "somebody of that level." The man acts and gets paid for it , that's it. He's not some deep philosopher or thinker. He's gonna say what the fuck benefits his career and following this "islamaphobia" agenda is what fits . If anything actors and holly wood folks in general should be the last people you should listen to if you're on the fence about these issues . They will say and act in a way that benefits their careers. They're actors in movies and are fake in real life as well. Props to affleck and his acting ability but that's as far as my props go .

  • John Pleaseg
    John Pleaseg 2 months ago

    Well, we can all watch the clip from the Bill Maher show, so I do not see why is he bothering lying that obvious :)
    Notice how much he is afraid of being called racist, because he knows that there is not a chance to come out entirely clean afterwards. He knows what makes people tick. He has done quite a similar thing in the Bill Maher show against muslims. He stated (to Ben Affleck, whit whom he did not allegedly speak with his entire attention) that 78% of the british muslims where under the opinion, that the norwegian caricaturist should be prosecuted. Now, leave it like that and most people will extract different moral value of it from the adequate. The hint is that muslims are incompatible with western societies and that is not true. If 78% of the british muslims were to believe that some guy should be prosecuted for blasphemy... maybe they have a point and the lawyers should look into it. There are laws for blasphemy in many countries in the EU and in the UK in particular. So, he might have broken some, he might have not... Who follows the story? Nobody! And nobody sees that those people are actually seeking justice within the laws of western societies. Most people will unconsciously assume that this is some Sheria BS and leave it like that. it`s easier...

    I like Harris and Rubin a lot, but they as Jews, along with many others who think sensibly, HAVE to address the role of their own people in creating this culture, both in policies of unrestricted immigration, chiefly in Europe, and in mystifyingly sucking off muslims at every opportunity, and creating whole swaths of white idiots who believe exactly the same and hate themselves with a passion.
