Max Kellerman, ESPN Radio and HBO boxing host, speaking on The Situation with Tucker Carlson:

CARLSON:  According to recent poll, more than 20 percent of Americans believe in ghosts.  […] OK, look, ghosts are real.  I think ghosts are real.  I will just put it out there.  I don‘t think there‘s any question actually.  But a lot of people don‘t think that. […]

KELLERMAN:  I don’t know if you are aware this is being broadcast live around the world, Tucker. 

CARLSON:  That‘s hardly the dumbest thing I have ever said. 

KELLERMAN:  […] I don’t believe in any supernatural phenomenon.  I’m not superstitious at all, but in my view, religion is essentially superstition.  And if–once you believe in God and supernatural forces, that your senses can’t take in, just based on faith, on belief, you should believe in ghosts.  It boggles my mind that like 90 percent believes in God, and only 20 percent believe in ghosts. 

And as we mature as a culture, and as we become more sophisticated, I think there’s less religious literalism, especially as rocket ships went into the sky said no God? Oh, well, God exists in a psychological space.  And as we get more sophisticated, we like to have it both ways. Yeah we kind of believe in God, but no we don‘t believe in ancillary stuff attached to it.
