We take a look at how doubt and skepticism can be essential ingredients to faith. Mary meets Rabbi Rami Shapiro - a rabbi who says he isn't religious, but rather a curious, holy rascal. She also talks to Michael Shermer, the founder of Skeptic Magazine. He's held his own against Deepak Chopra in a go round on consciousness and quantum physics.
