Atheism Provocatively Reasoned

Reading on the walk home from work:

I've got nothing, personally, against atheists. Some of my best friends are atheists. They can be very nice people. And not at all the unmitigated evil you'd expect from someone with no divinely inspired moral prescription.

The piece, "An Atheist Manifesto", by Sam Harris, is one of the most interesting pieces I've read about atheism.

Harris's article was written before the Mohammed cartoon bruhaha, but he's taken the occasion of the latter to follow up and respond to criticism's of the former. It's an annex debate as compelling as the original piece. The follow-up piece is here.
