The Full Text of the Penn & Teller Disclaimer

In the video below, some of Penn Jillette's gratuitous nastiness and acerbic wit has been edited out. However, what remains can be quite biting and, at times, seems insensitive and cruel. Please note that his harsh, hostile sarcasm is not a reflection of Yoan attitudes. Indeed, if you come across debunkers who can analyze false beliefs as incisively as Penn & Teller, please let us know. We would be glad to replace the unnecessary, hostile, mocking tone in this video with an equally effective piece that does the job as well without any disparaging disdain.

However, in the meantime, Penn & Teller's brilliant analyses of false beliefs are simply some of the best we have seen. This is an important exploration of the nature of beliefs that are based primarily on wishful thinking, righteousness, and self-interest, i.e., beliefs not based on Reality. We believe that the wish-fulfilling abandonment of intersubjective verifiability (the abandonment of what could be called "empirical responsibility") presented in this video, often lies at the root of some of the most intractable and horrendous human problems. When our deepest beliefs and values become disconnected from a profound commitment to and respect for reality humanity faces grave danger.

Penn & Teller are true Yoan Saints.

BRAZIL, May 2007 — Touching on a sensitive historical episode, Pope Benedict XVI said Latin American Indians had been "silently longing" to become Christians when Spanish and Portuguese conquerors took over their native lands centuries ago. Embracing Christianity purified them, the Pope said.

"In effect, the proclamation of Jesus and of his Gospel did not at any point involve an alienation of the pre-Columbus cultures, nor was it the imposition of a foreign culture," he said.
