Belief requires faith. Smart or not!! until proven everything is conjecture/theory. I kinda feel that way about string theory, but that's probably because i am not so smart.
Facts are disputed as belief, and that's mostly being closed minded and nothing to do with smarts.

I think he might mean the "made up" part more than any particular example.
Personally i am not averse to having a creator, or life having "meaning" or even an afterlife. But I am not constrained by it, do not view the world in absolutes. As each religion is the one true path to salvation and all others are heresy.

+ - Should Video Games Be In the Olypmics?-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The BBC is running a story about e-sports and competitive video game. It's based on comments from Rob Pardo, formerly of Blizzard Entertainment, who says there's a good argument for having e-sports in the Olympics. He says video games are well positioned to be a spectator sport — an opinion supported by Amazon's purchase of Twitch.tv for almost a billion dollars. The main obstacle, says Pardo, is getting people to accept video games as a legitimate sport. "If you want to define sport as something that takes a lot of physical exertion, then it's hard to argue that videogames should be a sport, but at the same time, when I'm looking at things that are already in the Olympics, I start questioning the definition." The article notes, "Take chess, for instance. Supporters of the game have long called for its inclusion the Games, but the IOC has been reluctant, considering it a 'mind sport' and therefore not welcome in the Games." So, should the Games expand to include "mind sports" and video games?"
