I honestly do not think he believes in a personal god, but he's very dodgy about that because most of his followers are religious right folks.

His specialty is how to manipulate the masses with propaganda. This guy is the ultimate snake!

I responded to what you said, I imagine had I wanted to comment on Jordan I would have done so...
I don’t misinterpret things much and believe I hit the mark on your stance as well as your and perhaps Jordan’s misconception that the brain is what processes God...
Do you wish to deflect some more or would you care to discuss your opinions?
Or are you saying you have no real opinions of your own?
I already know the answer...

What makes you think that most of his followers are religious right?
And what self respecting religious right person would follow a guy who refuses to state clearly his thoughts on the ressurection.
He speaks truth- and if nasty people recognize truth and embrace it (and possibly warp it to fit their agenda) should the rest of us plug our ears to the truth? I say not.
In retrospect, I theorize that he may have been the source of much of the pseudo-intellectual ramblings of the MAGA pushers we were exposed to from 2015-2018. Just a hypothesis really.

One of the reason people don't believe in creation is because they can't bring themselves to believe in God.

He seems to be spreading himself thin, I wonder if he is narcissistic...the signs are there.
wikipedia: Jordan_Peterson #Bill_C-16In response to the controversy, academic administrators at the University of Toronto sent Peterson two letters of warning, one noting that free speech had to be made in accordance with human rights legislation and the other adding that his refusal to use the preferred personal pronouns of students and faculty upon request could constitute discrimination. Peterson speculated that these warning letters were leading up to formal disciplinary action against him, but in December the university assured him that he would retain his professorship, and in January 2017 he returned to teach his psychology class at the University of Toronto.
