A Thorough Destruction of Faith-based Science

Sam Harris has a beyond excellent article out now entitled The strange case of Francis Collins” in which he takes the time to thoroughly dismantle some of the absurdity espoused by Francis Collins, the newly appointed head of the NIH. Collins is famous for arguing in his book The Language of God that 21st century science and Christianity can be harmonious bedfellows. The article is too long to comment on in more detail, but there are many choice passages throughout and reading it delivers a satisfying sensation akin to shooting fish in a barrel. It is a must read for those partial to the principles of freethought. Enjoy!
