Sam Harris on interpreting scripture

(6:47) It is often said that atheists take a literal reading of scripture (as a fundamentalist would) ignoring the sophistication and nuances that religion has to offer (what atheists would call 'cherry picking'). But if a holy book, authored by an omniscient god, were to be taken seriously, it should contain extraordinary words of wisdom and knowledge. But in the holy books, there are no mentions of electricity, DNA, quantum mechanics etc, things an omniscient god must surely be aware of. Come on religious people, wake up.
