4. These three are true in my experience:
16. A lot of people who consider themselves intelligent can’t properly label all the states on a map, or all the countries in Europe, let alone Africa or the Middle East. Most couldn’t list off the ten commandments, five pilars, or the amendments of the Constitution, and feel that politics are too complicated to bother with understanding, let alone talking about.

17. A lot of Christians have never, and will never, read the Bible. Most of them will conduct their lives exactly as they would if they’d never attended a single church service. It is nearly impossible to tell a Christian from an atheist by their actions alone. Both Christians and atheists will probably find the previous statement offensive.

18. For nearly every crazy idea, you can find a fully credentialed scientist who will back it up.




... other than that I'm not sure what the "five pilars" even are. (Pilar Rodriguez, Pilar Jones?)

But #16 you run into continuously. People who may be very smart about whatever they do but have no clue about politics, yet insist on an opinion, insist on NOT talking about it (but moving on to supposedly interesting things like sports or celebrities), and don't want to allow facts or establish definitions.
