As Sam Harris in The End of Faith puts it,

"Finding ourselves in a universe that seems bent on destroying us, we quickly discover, both as individuals and as societies, that it is a good thing to understand the forces arrayed against us. And so it is that every human being comes to desire genuine knowledge about the world"

To speak plainly and truthfully about the world""to say, for instance, that the Bible and the Koran both contain mountains of life-destroying gibberish""is antithetical to tolerance as moderates currently conceive it. But we can no longer afford the luxury of such political correctness. We must finally recognize the price we are paying to maintain the iconography of our ignorance."
