Morality and the Christian God Mashups

 

Back in April of 2011 Sam Harris debated William Lane Craig on the question of Is the Foundation of Morality Natural or Supernatural? at the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, in Indiana. You can view the complete original debate or view the transcript here.

Then back in November 6, 2013 Sam Harris invited animators (Morality and the Christian God | An Invitation to Animators and Filmmakers) to take his well known first rebuttal from the debate and create their own video to illustrate his talk. This is my collection of some of them.

What Sam Harris asks for, Sam Harris receives. He put out a challenge to video editors to make a video for his speech on morality, and it was as if he was talking directly to me. I thank the all mighty non-existent God that people like Sam are willing and able to concisely and with devastating impact put forward the argument against religion. His voice and his ideas are LONG overdue and severely needed. So happy to see that the internet has provided us with this new movement of reason, along with cat videos and porn, obviously.

Video by me…Devon Tracey.

WARNING: Conatains horrific images of natural disaster aftermath that may be offensive or hard for some people. Gorey imagery.

A few people have commented negatively on the graphic nature of the imagery in this video. Others have supported it. I think it’s important to note that I did not create these images, I found them. They were easy to find, I did an image search for dead children. Google did the rest. They were there all along, I just wasn’t aware of them. I had a similar reaction as some did, facing the truth. I wasn’t sure I should use them. But then I reminded myself that they are there, whether or not I pretend they aren’t. If more people were aware, maybe more would be shocked. Maybe less would be complacent. Maybe more people would act. Maybe by facing the truth, there could be change.
