*Though I haven’t thought up a clever name yet (like the Melodrama in Ljubljana), I’ve written a few times about the questionable approach taken by Terry Firma and Sam Harris when offering critiques of religion (here and here are two good examples). So, I figure, to help drum up controversy, I’m declaring an official rivalry between myself and the combined forces of Sam Harris and Terry Firma (don’t sweat the details).
Obviously, the rivalry thing is mostly tongue-in-cheek (mostly), but Fincke’s post does a good job of explaining how the approach is harmful.
If you have suggestions for the name of my new, public, intellectual rivalry, please submit them in the comments section. (Bonus points for good alliteration.)
