I dunno - if that is a picture of Jack Haas, then it is a cipher that belies the credulity of his utterances. Huge beards are impractical at best. Who could believe a word of what someone who deliberately looks like that says?

Tsk, Tsk.

Willie R., Millions of people in India follow men with huge beards.
