Description

On this episode of The Portal, Eric talks to one of his closest friends, neuroscientist, philosopher and meditation-guru, Sam Harris. When Sam and Eric sit down they generally agree about a large number of things. So in this experiment of a session, Eric attempts to push the relentlessly reasonable and methodical Sam out of his comfort zone to highlight their genuine differences. These include: beliefs on religion, the logic of voting for unreasonable candidates, Jeffrey Epstein's demise, the competence of the press, the ethics of immigration and more.

Their takes on Sam Seder are childish and pathetic. All I hear are excuses from cowards to have a simple discussion.

This feels like “a swing and a miss”. Sam’s acknowledgement of your distinctly constructive conversation with Rabbi Wolpe could have been a pivot to Sam’s approach and opinions about religion. You are uniquely able and inclined to find something fertile in a terrain Sam wants us to “outgrow”. I’m sorry that didn’t happen.
