Does Believing in God Make Sense? Sam Harris and Andrew Sullivan Face Off in a Beliefnet "Blogalogue"

This week, two leading thinkers take sides in an extraordinary "blogalogue" about, faith, and religious violence. Best-selling author Sam Harris, author of the controversial books "The End of Faith" and "Letter to a Christian Nation," explains why he's an atheist and why religion, to him, is the force most to blame for tragedies like 9/11. Uberblogger Andrew Sullivan, pro-religion author of "The Conservative Soul," responds to Harris' Beliefnet posts on his own blog--countering that faith and reason aren't mutually exclusive.

This between two of today's most outspoken writers will interest conservatives, liberals, devout believers and skeptics.
