Great! I’m glad to hear that when Sam is beating the drum against religion that he isn’t engaging in science. So let’s stop introducing him as a neuroscientist when he appears on Bill Maher or Joe Rogan. It’s misleading.

But, he is a neuroscientist. Scientists don’t do science 100% of the time. They are known to do things like eat dinner, go to movies, and be advocates. He is a neuroscientist who is also an anti-religious advocate. You repeatedly touted your own scientific background and educational credentials in your own article. Why get mad at Sam Harris for doing the same thing? It’s part of his story as a human being that he got a Ph.D. in neuroscience. Is he not entitled to his own identity as a person?

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist.
