Crisis of faith

Geez, thanks a lot, Eliezer Yudkowsky, you got me thinking again. :)

I really like the idea of a made-up parallel universe, where we deliberately create a constraint that says our beliefs are wrong. I've had the habit of doing this parallel-universe-self-questioning for the longest time, but I never had a good way of sharing this concept with other people without scaring them off into their shells.
