You want to argue that the 6 basic beliefs are false?

There are two ways to be a scriptural literalist; one is as a believer, and the other is however you're undertaking scriptural literalism. Of course, you have to do the same kind of cherry-picking the believers do in order to say what the basic beliefs are.

The justifications for trying to understand literalism are all over the map, but most of the time it boils down to another us vs. them shit-flinging contest. Just to be clear, us vs. them is much more important than anything else for Harris, and evidently, for you, too. It's also true for a lot of those who don't like what Harris has to say, so we hear things about fanboys from both sides of the us vs. them divide, and so on.

A lot of these folks can't get themselves out of bed in the morning without an enemy to battle.
