New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2007
This week, two leading thinkers take sides in an extraordinary "blogalogue" about http://www.beliefnet.com/ep/god.asp, 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.
