    He's just one of the recent ones in a very long line of religionists who refuse to "look through the glass".

    When I see these over-the-top evangelicals, I can't help myself wondering how much, if any, sincerity there is in their spiel. There is a hell of a lot of money to be made in pandering to any belief system that has a significant following and these evangelicals certainly rake in a nice share of that money. It reminds me of P.T.Barnum.

    I once considered writing books pandering the the large UFO believers community, even did some research to develop a niche slant. But then reconsidered... I couldn't bring myself to lie and encourage their delusions even though there could be a lot of financial rewards for doing so.
