    I like listening to Sam Harris.

    But, why are there so few comments on this blog?
    I hope you have more readers, than people who write comments on here.

    My english is not that good, i try my best to speak the language this blog was designed for, but i think you get my question.

      This blog doesn’t have many readers, yet. I presently lack the time to write all too much for this blog, which is certainly one of the reasons.

    Harris’ position is not really convincing and very simplifying as ist is said in this review of the book:

    “Harris might be right that the best way to reach a “wider audience” is to sidestep difficult philosophical issues. But just how helpful to that wider audience can a book be that hides from the complexities of its subject, and misrepresents what it alleges to discuss by making genuinely difficult questions look straightforward and simple?”
