And before anyone gets all whatever about this being an attack on Christianity, it isn't. Although coming from Sam Harris, I guess it's easy to assume that. The point to remember is that literal belief in the infallibility of the bible (fundamentalism) is a minority attitude even in the US, however much they may loudly want you to believe otherwise. And it's beyond minority practically into non-existant everywhere else. Most of the arguments against the christian religion are only a problem for you if you are a fundamentalist. And if you're a fundamentalist, the problem's been getting worse and worse since Galileo.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
