Gotta love Sam, as usual. But I wish he would have given due credit for the great idea he promoted to the ancient atheistic philosophy of Zen Buddhism, whence it originated. Core tenets espouse no personal deity, no personal life after death, and never have, focusing instead on the problem of suffering and compassion for all sentient beings, using the very techniques he demonstrated. Zen has been highjacked by the mindfulness movement, but it works, so it's good of Sam to serve as an advocate.

Sam Harris is great as usual.  This was 2012 April at the Celebration of Reason.
