According to Wikipedia "Scalia has been described as the intellectual anchor of the Court's conservative wing", and it makes sense in a way, conservatives don't want change and Scalia (the man who put George Bush in the white House) and his views would be at home in the 12'th century. He seems genuinely puzzled as to why the devil doesn't make his existence obvious as he did in Biblical times! He also says that people smarter than you or me have believed in this drivel, and that's true, but Scalia doesn't believe it because of his towering intellect, he believes it because when he was still pooping in his pants his mommy and daddy told him that a invisible man in the sky who loves him very much will torture him for a infinite number of years if he places one toe out of line. And being a conservative who doesn't like change his view hasn't changed from that day to this. I like Bill Maher's comment on the Scalia interview: "They usually see Michele Bachmann as a total loon, but Scalia as a serious intellectual. When actually, they're the exact same idiot. It would be one thing if Mr. Scalia sold pizza for a living, but this is a man we go to to interpret our laws. It's like smelling a gas leak and calling an exorcist."
