Jordan Peterson or Sam Harris?
Which one do you enjoy listening to more?

I listened to the debates between the two on Sam Harris' podcast and, in my mind, they were both way too smart for me, I didn't really follow half of what they were talking about because of the type of language and citations they were using.

However, I find that Jordan Peterson's podcast and the things he's done on other shows or outlets to be amazing. I've been listening to his Biblical Series, I'm a Christian, not trying to get into the debate of Atheism vs. Christianity at the moment, but I find that I understand the first few stories of the Bible in a much clearer way than I ever did before I listened to his podcast.

The things that Dr. Peterson says are so profound to me. I don't know if it's his delivery or that you can tell he believes 100% of what he's saying and isn't just going through the motions out there; but something about his message seems so spot on in so many ways.

Here's an example of something that I heard him say while listening to his podcast. It's from his Biblical Series and the episode is "The Call to Abraham."

Listen to around 27:30

I'm a tremendous fan of Jordan Peterson

Anyone else think he sounds EXACTLY like Glenn from Superstore?

Harris is more intelligent and more interesting.

Could you elaborate on that? Not saying you’re necessarily wrong or anything, I haven’t listened to a lot of Sam Harris so I couldn’t say one way or another.

Peterson would make a really good Catholic. And that's not a compliment.

I stick with Peej. I feel that he addresses things with the complexity they deserve. There is a reason Sam and Jordan refuse to debate him.

That’s not what I’m wanting to discuss here. Peterson is agnostic in any case, I believe.

Listening to Peterson makes me tired.

Listening to Harris makes me turn the channel.

They’re both philosophers of sorts.

They both annoy the shite out of me. Probably Peterson since he doesn’t sound like he’s on the verge of crying half the time
