Wierd, isn't it, how so often the religious are embarrassed by the tenets of their own belief system? In their evasive failure to answer such a fair question, they demonstrate that they clearly know it's a pile of rubbish. They know that to admit to believing in the eucharist would make them look pathetic and gullible, but on the other hand, such an admission would indicate that they aren't as convinced by Catholicism as they feel it necessary to maintain. This is where Dennett has it spot on: these peoe are simply maintaining a charade, pretending to believe because they feel they have to, while knowing full well those beliefs are crazy and indefensible.
