The reference to Mark 9:24 came to mind when reading this Jesus And Mo comic. For those not familiar, J&M is written by an anonymous author (for her/his protection) and is very anti-religion. Often the strip has very prescient and insightful comments and there is always truth in it. I am well aware of the research the Barmaid refers to in this strip, but I cannot get past the logical rejoinder that is omitted. If all “strongly held beliefs are unaffected by contradictory evidence” then doesn’t it follow that the Barmaid’s belief that there is no God also just as likely to be “unaffected by contradictory evidence”?
