"The End of Faith articulates the dangers and absurdities of organized religion so fiercely and so fearlessly that I felt relieved as I read it, vindicated....Harris writes what a sizable number of us think, but few are willing to say."—Natalie Angier, ?New York Times
In ?The End of Faith?, Sam Harris delivers a startling analysis of the clash between reason and religion in the modern world. He offers a vivid, historical tour of our willingness to suspend reason in favor of religious beliefs—even when these beliefs inspire the worst human atrocities. While warning against the encroachment of organized religion into world politics, Harris draws on insights from neuroscience, philosophy, and Eastern mysticism to deliver a call for a truly modern foundation for ethics and spirituality that is both secular and humanistic. Winner of the 2005 PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction.

People of faith in any religion beware: if you are logically consistent, honest about seeking truth, and want to continue having your faith, DO NOT read this book. In it, you will find logical consistency, you will find truth, but you will lose your faith. As you, and as everyone else, should.
This book is required reading for any person who values reason. There is something in it for those who still cling to faith, as well as those of us who would make apologies for barbaric behavior perpetrated based on religious faith simply because it is part of another culture.
This book should be mandatory reading in all schools.
