responses to Sam Harris

RJ Eskow writes a stinging rebuke to Sam Harris for his alleged refusal to:

acknowledge the research of Martin E. Marty and the Fundamentalism Project, whose complex multidisciplinary study found several intriguing patterns in the distribution of fundamentalism throughout all faiths.

Among the Project's findings was the discovery that fundamentalists, who average roughly 20% of any major faith today, all seek to acquire power using similar techniques and belief systems. Their beliefs share much more in common with fundamentalists of other faiths than they do with their co-religionists, a finding that challenges the notion that Islam is an especially evil religion.

Nancy Gregg pens another rebuke of Harris at DU that is, if anything, even harsher.
