← Geoffrey Crawley, 83, Dies; Gently Deflated a Fairy Hoax

I have a friend who doesn't believe in god, but claims, in all seriousness, to believe in fairies (as well as tarot, chakras, crystal balls, astrology and all that other 'New Age' rubbish).

Her's isn't a case of cognitive dissonance, however: she's happy to dismiss the existance of a god, specifically the Christian god, because she doesn't care for Biblical morality. In contrast, New Age idiocy lets her revel in the irrational and the ridiculous without making her feel guilty for doing things Christianity disapproves of.
