    Mr. Harris speaks in such a calm, reassuring way that differs from a lot of the “angrier” atheist spokespeople. I never get tired of his speeches.

    I’m reading “The End of Faith” right now, and I love his analogy about faith in God to having a refrigerator-sized diamond buried in his backyard that provides him peace. Who would want to live in a world where there wasn’t a refrigerator-sized diamond buried in the backyard?? Good stuff.

    Haha, yeah, I’ve heard other atheists remark on Harris’ ability to keep calm under any circumstance. It’s like his house could burn down and he’d still arrive at a lecture on time without any indication that something was bothering him. 🙂
