The 'Four Horsemen' Discuss Experiences Advocating Against Theology

On the 30th of September 2007, Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens sat down for a first-of-its-kind, unmoderated 2-hour discussion:

[Sam Harris] "Well thats what it is to trespass a tabboo. I think we're all gathering the fact that religion is held off the table of rational criticism in some kind of formal way, even by--we're discovering--our fellow secularists and our fellow atheists [who will say]: "Just leave people to their own superstition even if it's abject and causing harm. Don't look too closely at it.""
