In this (profane) installment of Penn Jillette's Atheist's Guide to the 2012 Election, the Penn and Teller illusionist (and outspoken atheist) sizes up Mitt Romney's religion.


So I think Penn makes a good point in this video. What makes perfectly sane people believe crazy things? If conspiracy theorists even believe in semi-outlandish things they get called nuts, tin foil hats etc. But if someone tells you they really believe in talking snakes they get a free pass? WHY?

FEMA Camps are far more plausible than sky fairies.

It's a good point he and you make.

It touches a bit on The Gut's thread about the Aviary, where they believe that everybody is delusional but it does not have a negative consequence on their lives - such as believing in gods and miracles and magic powers.

He does make a good point. However, he needs to include himself in there. I think he says some bat s*&% crazy stuff, but I still think he's a good guy and not bat s&*% crazy.
