Sam Harris: Science can answer moral questions
We need an anagram to get things in the right order: Morality is the subject-matter of ETHOLOGY, not THEOLOGY. It was a delight to listen to Dr Sam Harris make this long overdue reordering, with aplomb. If you pride yourself in being a 'post-modernist' or 'religious apologist', let this talk 'detonate in your brain'. I can't thank Sam Harris enough for claiming for scientists a locus standi to speak on morality, for clearing our name, clearing the air and winning us airtime to make scientific claims about morality.
