Sam Harris, 1967-2011

Sam Harris got into a bad car accident this morning and was pronounced dead this afternoon, as reported by CNN. He wrote numerous best sellers on atheism and religion, and made a name for himself as one of the “Four Horsemen”. His dry wit, impeccable calm, and commitment to science served as a voice of reason against a background of religious superstition and darkness.  We’ll miss him greatly.
