Sam Harris needs to publish his conversation with Omer Aziz

March 7, 2016

On December 27, 2015, Yale law student Omer Aziz wrote an article for Salon blasting Sam Harris. In this article, Aziz ranted and rambled endlessly about Harris without pausing for breath.

I first asked myself the above question when I attended a summer evolution institute at the University of California, Berkeley, titled “Think Evolution,” which consisted of a series of crash courses in current, frontier research in the field of evolution.  I received many amazing lectures from leading scientists in […]
