  1. Why was Sam Harris allowed to get away with comparing the religous to racists, does Julian think this is fair and accurate? Personally, I think it’s a pretty disgusting comparison.

    And does Sam Harris see himself as the Martin Luther King Jr. of Atheism? Are atheists even descriminated against at all? I have never experienced it. Perhapse, if I was one of those atheists that liked to tell every single Christian I met that they are automatically an irrational idiot, I might have eperienced it before now! But that would be a different thing entirely.

    Maybe it helps sell more books!
