  1. I agree with so much of what he says, but it’s like he has a bit of cognitive dissonance when he talks about eating animal products. I don’t know if he’s thought veganism completely through yet, but it does seem like he’s going in that direction.

  2. For such an intelligent guy, Sam Harris is really – well, not to put too fine a point on it – stupid. His cognitive dissonance is plain for all to see. He knows that the world he posits is unobtainable – so why not stop eating animals in the meantime?
