Frozen yogurt makes you invisible

Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith talks to Newsweek in Being an Atheist in America Isn't Easy and says:
"'Tell a devout Christian ... that frozen yogurt can make a man invisible,' Harris writes, 'and he is likely to require as much evidence as anyone else, and to be persuaded only to the extent that you give it. Tell him that the book he keeps by his bed was written by an invisible deity who will punish him with fire for eternity if he fails to accept its every incredible claim about the universe, and he seems to require no evidence whatsoever.'"

  1. wouldn't it be a grand day when believing in humanity was sufficient to satisfy our metaphysical needs? Belief in each other and the community of man?
