    Since there is no scientific evidence to support belief in a deity, why the hell would you expect Hutchins to be constantly questioning his beliefs?  You don't question something for the sake of questioning it, or in order to call yourself a skeptic, you do so in order to come to the true conclusion.  

    If there was some evidence that would cause him to question his beliefs then maybe he would or wouldn't.  But right now there is no reason for him to question them.  

    This is the mistaken assumption a lot of agnostics make.  There being no evidence of god does not mean we have to assume it's a possibility until conclusively proven false.  On the contrary, if there's no evidence of something the default assumption is that it does not exist, until the point where there is some evidence to suggest otherwise.  

    Don't like XOM and OPEC? What have YOU done to reduce your oil consumption? Hot air does NOT constitute a renewable resource!
