Synopsis: Bill Maher interviews some of religion's oddest adherents. Muslims, Jews and Christians of many kinds pass before his jaundiced eye. Maher goes to a Creationist Museum in Kentucky, which shows that dinosaurs and people lived at the same time 5000 years ago. He talks to truckers at a Truckers' Chapel. (Sign outside: "Jesus love you.") He goes to a theme park called Holy Land in Florida. He speaks to a rabbi in league with Holocaust deniers. He talks to a Muslim musician who preaches hatred of Jews. Maher finds the unlikeliest of believers and, in a certain Vatican priest, he even finds an unlikely skeptic.

It never occurred to me to say,

"Why didn't you go to church?"


what church do we belong to?

I don't remember

this ever coming up.

Of course you didn't go

to church with us.

No, we never had a family

discussion about it, never.

We never had

a family discussion about that.

Every family is dysfunctional.

So you thought even this,

which wasn't your religion,

was better than no religion.

Well, even this only

told you good things...

I thought.

But it's just so shamelessly

invented as they go along.

- We can say that now.

- Was anyone...

When we quit

the church, I was 13,

and I was of course thrilled,

but not for any ideological reason.

I was just thrilled

'cause I hated church.

It scared me.

It was boring.

I had to get up

on Sunday.

I was 13.

I would've worshiped anything

that could've allowed me

to masturbate even more

than I was masturbating

or get a girl. That god I would have

definitely worshipped.

Why do you remember

Dad stopped going to church?

We used birth control,

and the church frowned

on birth control.

That was the biggest sin

- you could ever commit.

- Right, that would...

I think that was possibly...

he never said it to me.

And he never went back.

None of us ever did.

So now that we don't believe,

where did...

Nobody said we don't believe.

We don't believe in Catholicism.

Right, but what do

we believe in now?

Come on.

You're my mother, instruct me.

I don't know

the answer to that.

That's my answer.

We'll take some back roads to see

- some interesting stuff out here.

- Take some back roads.

We are heading toward Raleigh, right?

Oh, yeah, man, can't you feel it?

Do I stand up here?

So as I was going here,

I just jotted down

a few questions that came to my mind.

Are you ever bothered
