Video: ‘Religious People Are Nerds’

How would you define “nerd”? In this video from College Humor, the narrator defines it as “a person who is really obsessed with something.” And then, he notes, religious people are really obsessed with their religion in the way that Star Wars nerds are obsessed with their favorite movies. Do you agree or disagree with this notion? Either way, it’s sort of funny.

    Funny stuff, but they have clearly mixed up the concepts of nerd and geek. None of those people are nerds. They’re geeks.

    This made my day. I think I can safely say I’m not a nerd in his sense, though I do love religion and board games (Settlers!).

    I’m a religion nerd who isn’t religious. I’m not sure where I fit in.
