On 12 Sep 2001, Harris, the day after 9/11 attacks, wherein Saudi Arabian terrorists, out of a justified religious "belief", few planes into various US buildings, began writing his The End of Faith, which was published in 2004, thereafter becoming a national best-seller, and launching the new atheism movement.

The following are quotes by Harris:
- “A belief is a lever that, once pulled, moves almost everything else in a person’s life. Are you a scientist? A liberal? A racist? These are merely species of belief in action. Your beliefs define your vision of the world; they dictate your behavior; they determine your emotional responses to other human beings.”
