Sam Harris TED Video: Science can answer moral questions

It’s been some time since we have heard from Cardinal Sam Harris. Well, now he’s back. Below is the video of his talk at this year’s TED.

From the TED site:

From the Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.

Great stuff! In my opinion this is the next arena freethinkers must do battle with the religious. We truly do have the ethical high ground.
