Sam Harris is a psychopath?

It is science:
A study conducted by Daniel Bartels, Columbia Business School, Marketing, and David Pizarro, Cornell University, Psychology found that people who endorse actions consistent with an ethic of utilitarianism—the view that what is the morally right thing to do is whatever produces the best overall consequences—tend to possess psychopathic and Machiavellian personality traits.... Bartels and Pizarro found a strong link between utilitarian responses to these dilemmas (e.g., approving the killing of an innocent person to save the others) and personality styles that were psychopathic, Machiavellian or tended to view life as meaningless.
And there is your scientific connection between the man who advocates a happiness/suffering moral metric and the one who also advocates killing people for the mere possession of dangerous beliefs. They tend to be one and the same, and in the case of Mr. Harris, they are.

If you are referring to Sam Harris the man who has discussed Simulation Theory, you are correct. I have identified psychopaths in the past with high accuracy, and I can confirm that Sam Harris is a psychopath. I found this page searching "Sam Harris is a psychopath" on Google, because I was so unsettled by his picture and video's of him speaking. He is of the same ilk as Serial Killer Ted Bundy, but probably would not act out violently. He does not possess feelings of empathy for anyone, and is unphased by violence or cruelty to others. He exists solely for himself, and is utterly cold in his feelings towards all living things. If anyone had a similar reaction to him, post a comment here, because I am interested in meeting other people with this sensitivity to psychopaths.

Acrocosm, I landed here doing a similar Google search and I agree with you. Sociopath or psychopath for sure.
