Who drugged Sam Harris’ water?

Given a choice between Noam Chomsky and Ben Carson, in terms of the totality of their understanding of what’s happening now in the world, I’d vote for Ben Carson every time. Ben Carson is a dangerously deluded religious imbecile, Ben Carson does not…the fact that he is a candidate for president is a scandal…but at the very least he can be counted on to sort of get this one right. He understands that jihadists are the enemy.

First off, Ben “struggling to grasp foreign policy” Carson? Secondly, Harris still hasn’t learned basic probability, years after being introduced to it. Thirdly, he  seems to carry a grudge over Chomsky for some bizarre reason. Fourthly, Harris doesn’t seem to think Christian terrorism exists, when in fact it’s a much bigger concern in the USA.

Still, it could be worse. He could be obsessing over a boy with a clock.

Richard Dawkins: “But he’s only a kid.” Yes, a “kid” old enough to sue for $15M those whom he hoaxed. And how old is this “kid”? [link to a news article on a child soldier beheading someone]

OK, I’ll spell it out. People are defending Clock Hoax Boy by saying “He’s only a kid.” My point is kids can do the indefensible

No, I just want to alert the gullible fools who fell for his scam. And STILL fall for it even after his $15M demand!

Yep, months later Dawkins is still winging about Ahmed and his clock, to the point of calling him “Hoax Boy” and leaping in with conspiracy theorists because Ahmed apparently used the wrong word in an interview. The $15 million comes from a discrimination suit Ahmed has filed against the school and school board that humiliated him.

Why did we ever look up to these assholes?
