From the New York Times bestselling author of The End of Faith, a thought-provoking, "brilliant and witty" (Oliver Sacks) look at the notion of free will—and the implications that it is an illusion.

A belief in free will touches nearly everything that human beings value. It is difficult to think about law, politics, religion, public policy, intimate relationships, morality—as well as feelings of remorse or personal achievement—without first imagining that every person is the true source of his or her thoughts and actions. And yet the facts tell us that free will is an illusion.

In this enlightening book, Sam Harris argues that this truth about the human mind does not undermine morality or diminish the importance of social and political freedom, but it can and should change the way we think about some of the most important questions in life.

It's fascinating as an exercise in believing contradictions. But, I guess I was determined to have said that, damned fatalism!!

Quote from tiredpenguin :
He's willing to criticize Islam just as harshly as he criticizes Christianity which is anathema to many people on the far-left. As an atheist (former Muslim) Islam is terrible just like Christianity and Judaism.

I'd be willing to bet the prior poster couldn't give names of harsh critics of Islam he/she thinks are not Islamophobic.
Trading one fatalistic system for another.. Pantheism, monism, Calvinism, Augustinian anthropology/soteriology, all end up deterministic in the end, just like atheism. But atheism was mostly constructed after Christian theology was Platonized thoroughly, atheists called the bull, rightly so (though it's debatable with several figures like Occam) but instead of thinking originally, mainly they are reactionary against theism. They need a big brother to be pissed off with. Every system of thought that identifies either God or God's will with everything that is actual, or conflates nature with will, nature with person, etc. - ends up a determinist, and either the universe or God, or something prior to either, is a fatalism machine.
