Sam Harris and Jainism

The Sepia Mutiny, a blog for Indian people, made mention of Sam Harris’ endorsement (but not support) of Jainism as a more peaceful religion. They forget to mention he made the same “endorsement” in The End of Faith. But it is interesting to see Indians, often religious and certainly not the target audience for Harris’ book, respond to his take on Jainism.

    If I was going to be religious, I think I’d want to be a Jain. It just makes the most sense to me.
