    The two persons in black have made the following remarks.

    1)Hank gives money to you if you do his bidding, but he will do so only after you have left town. Basically, worship God, but you will be rewarded only after you're gone.

    2)My mother kissed Hank's ass and was rewarded when she left town. I have not spoken to my mother ever since. Why would that be? Could it be because she left the town? Unpersuasive, as that way it would be easy to maintain contact with her. She died and that is why the character was unable to maintain contact with her.

    3)Hank is always right because he says he is. The implication of this is that he is the ultimate authority with regard to anything. God is the only entity upon which such great esteem is frequently conferred.

    4)As an entailment of point three, one of the persons in black said that the scientists make mistakes, but Hanks is always right. This is an allusion to the famous theological doctrine concerning the primacy of revelation over reason.

    5) One of the persons in black has stated that the moon is made of blue cheese. He justifies this with the doctrine established in point four. Religions are often concerned with cosmological questions and this is such a question.

    6)Kick the shit out of those who are different from you was also a remark made by one of the persons in black. Hostility towards those who hold beliefs incompatible with one's own religious beliefs is also a common attitude among the religious.
    Can't argue with this reasoning. But it's often not difficult to curve fit a particular theory on to a given situation. Something like data-snooping bias; not sure what the equivalent is called these situations.

    How come nobody puzzles over the fact that the missionaries were trying to sell their religion to god himself?

    Was that Hank's test -- checking on their loyalty?
    God can't do it the same way.

    Maybe you're all reading too much into it.
    Or else maybe the video is retarded, despite the one legitimate point.

    You could put all I know of theology on a postage.
