Sam Harris wrote:The Myth of "Moderation" in Religion

...snip...

What I notice about this is the complete absence of examples. I kept waiting for them to appear and they just don't. Harris's whole analysis of moderates floats free of what and how any particular moderates believe. I guess he doesn't want to fall prey to generalising from a couple of examples in the text, so...he generalises from none. I don't think this is for skeptics of Harris's work, I think it's for those who already take him as authoritative or on faith.
