Sam Harris will at Denver on Feb20, After his fight on Real time Ben Affleck , he has never been back, what a shame. Islam is the mother load of bad ideas.
I read both versions of the Koran. The one I have in print says that it is okay, even civilized, to kidnap people for ransom. The translation from the 1930s (available on Gutenburg.org) has a whole lot of fire, burning, etc.). I don't know who Sam Harris is. But I will look for him.
