Dinesh D'Souza comments on Sam Harris:
"My conclusion is that it is not religion but atheism that requires a Darwinian explanation. It seems perplexing why nature would breed a group of people who see no purpose to life or the universe, indeed whose only moral drive seems to be sneering at their fellow human beings who do have a sense of purpose. Here is where the biological expertise of Dawkins and his friends could prove illuminating. Maybe they can turn their Darwinian lens on themselves and help us understand how atheism, like the human tailbone and the panda's thumb, somehow survived as an evolutionary leftover of our primitive past."
Here is a man admitting that there is an evolutionary explanation of faith and belief in God: it was necessary for intelligent man to have the will to live. But, he also acknowledges that people all over the world continually embrace faith. Not because they're right, but because they feel good about it. Atheism isn't bad not because it's wrong, but because it makes life meaningless.
I have trouble believing something just because it makes my life convenient. I wonder why African Americans have embraced Islam as opposed to Buddhism or Hinduism.
