Sam Harris: Science Can Answer Moral Questions

I thought this was a great talk by philosopher Sam Harris, where he raises some very basic points about the relationship between religion, science and humanity. I especially like the simple yet respectful way that he calls out facts that we all know as humans that think and feel, but often times get glossed over out of cultural/religion respect and not wanting to step on any toes. The take-away for me is that as a people for us to truly elevate our discourse about anything is to admit that there are certain black/white truths about what is generally good and bad.
