What's your main bone of contention with the video? You don't think everyone has their own "skeptometers" that they dial up or down, depending on whether or not the information coming their way fits their worldview?

I think it makes a good point and after all, he did say that, "anyone can do this, Christians, Muslims, atheists, agnostics, conservatives, liberals. We can all adjust our level of scepticism to preserve certain beliefs... "

There's no denying that. We see it on the forum every day.
