Discussing Delusions

People feel no guilt at discussing insanities and delusions held by politicians, e.g. that there is a giant conspiracy of all the world’s scientists and the governments of all non-American countries to trick Americans into reducing greenhouse gas emissions, a delusion held without any evidence whatsoever. However, they consider religiously-inspired delusions off-limits, e.g. a rejection of biology and geology on the matter of how the earth and its lifeforms came to be, or a belief in the infallibility of commands given by disembodied voices that claim to be Jesus or a god.
