    Is that what he said and why he is viewed as such?

      Ok, technically he said "increase wellbeing" and "decrease unwellbeing", to distinguish his position from "happiness" vs "unhappiness", but he failed to distinguish these terms from "good" and "evil". I can't imagine any way that you could define "wellbeing" other than that which is good for a being.

        No.

        He said "DEAD CHILDREN I WOULDNT HAVE CARED." That is where he expected the "most good decision" to be. The interviewers made him review his answer, he doubled down.

        Now he has egg on jis face, he mixed politics and theology...theyre not 100% overlapping for a reason (the whole Church and State debate).

        But Dawkins, like many others, are noticing that, Harris didnt and seems to not be able to. One of those "invisbile lines of perspective/logic/many things".

        >I can't imagine any way that you could define "wellbeing" other than that which is good for a being.
        Exactly, neither could Harris, he could only see from his own perspective, and not where his was no longer morally coherent.

        Because "wellbeing" is a nebulous term that doesn't actually convey meaning. Taliban would say that they are improving wellbeing by keeping women out of higher education. Americans would say they are improving wellbeing by allowing women to get higher education. Who is actually right? It's merely a matter of opinion.

          Yes, and his morallity and opinion mixed, a kind of Tyrant.

          The very thing he cautioned against.

            Or in otherwords, his certainty was laid in himself alone and he used his emotions as Judge.

            Which...I do too, we all do, but I try to "go there and see for myself" before coming to any kind of verdict, and even then I know its never the full story.

            Because his "moral logic" crumbled...his own intellect was psy-op'd by his own....Passions.

            His "Buddhist background" was supposed to prepare him for that...

            In fact, him subconsciously mixing Buddhist and Christian morality could have caused this, a kind of faustian possession.

            Christianity and Buddhism overlap in a way and why many in the US choose it for a "new religion".

          I think "wellbeing" is a crap metric, but there is a reason to use it over "happiness". Imo the distinction is basically that wellbeing is some weighed average of all the good stuff people care about (happiness, fulfilment, intellectual stimulation etc.) and the bad stuff (unhappiness, aimlessness, pain, boredom etc.). When viewed like this, I'd say there were times in my life when I was happy, but my wellbeing was low.

          He forgot about that...because he was convinced the talking snake (bird/tweet/.gov) was a fren. Its not.

          I listened to my talking snake (beetle). You need a magic talking animal to live a magical life with.

          PS: I intentionally killed the beetle over a disagreement. Felt bad but it was cathartic, besides...he was just...Judged.

    So he should be fricking kids and praying for forgiveness after? Because he is guaranteed heaven just for believing in Jesus and the Holy trinity?

      It's better than fricking kids and not asking for forgiveness after. At least he would be moving in the objectively correct direction from where he is now.

      Actually it did, your beliefs and opinions have correlation to your physiology, different tribes view relity a bit dofferently and universal morality is the goal.

      Otherwise LAWS and MORALS change with winds (of Psy-Ops and his own delusions).

      If laws can change on political winds theyre not laws, theyre borders you use against other people with their help, which is where this "moral" thing is.

          Hierarchy, if your politics must violate morals then is it "moral"?

          Also, he is confusing his emotions and logic, he doesnt seem to have his "brain/heart" connection figured ot, he is a high functioning Autist, he does NOT have Apsergers (who do have a coherent brain/heart connection).

          His logic ignored the worst of crimes for political wins, is his logic based morality moral?

          My Judicial overview is Logic based as well, but it is not just intellect I am measuring. Not emotions, but...is a part, as the Judge isnt supposed to be too emotionally invested in two parties when making a decision for both.

          He is fighting for himself, not the ideas, and using "the right combinations of words" to be in that position.

          Because he doesnt live by these words....he is just playing a position, LARPing.

    Anyway, if you guys are interested in Sam Harris, you should check out his recent appearance on the Alex O'Connor (a.k.a. Cosmic Skeptic) podcast. I really enjoyed the interview.

    Anyone feel alienated from both Christians and atheists? One are simple and culty and the other are braindead turbo liberal homosexuals. I don’t fit in with either camp. The fundamentalist wounds haven’t healed either and that drives my resentment for religion but I don’t know, reality isn’t fun.
