This is an interesting train of thought, as Harris uses the analogy that, just as non-astrologer is not an intellectual position, neither should "atheist" be a label required to identify oneself as eschewing belief in a deity.
The more familiar I become with Harris, the more intrigued I am with his apparent compassion, reflection, serenity, and concise manner of conveying his thoughts.
A couple of important themes:
- We have something we can accomplish with like-minded individuals of faith (in reference to Islamic oppression such as Burkas on women and death to the raped)
- We should eradicate all bad ideas (not just religion)
- Be unremittingly, intellectually honest.
