Default Re: Commenter Court: The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown (Robert Wright & Aryeh Cohen-Wade)

I was at the conference in LA when Bob debated Sam Harris, and as a huge Sam Harris fan (both of his ideas and his debating style) I have to say that he did an astoundingly bad job of keeping to the topic and adapting his ideas to answer questions Bob posed. Most of the time Sam simply asked a question, waited for Bob to say about half a sentence, and then immediately began clarifying his question with a dozen other hypotheticals. It was disappointing. I have to say that Bob is one of the more formidable opponents Harris has debated, and I've been swayed a lot by his objections to the new atheism.
