Faith du Jour

Last night I was watching Real Time with Bill Maher when I heard this stat

(NPR) The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life surveyed tens of thousands of Americans and found that more than 40 percent will switch from the faith of their upbringing.
This is one of those stats that make you scratch your head about organized religion. I mean, come on, how can any rational person look at this and say there is one absolute religion. If you can't answer with 100 percent certainty that there is, then how can you believe in any religion? Oh that's right, it a "faith", no proof needed. People seem to be more loyal to NASCAR drivers and branded products than they are to their religion.

What would Jesus drive? Some NASCAR fans might say he drove a black Chevy with the number 3 on it.
