Why Are Religious Converts Often Violent Nuts?

Just the very act of choosing one myth over another indicates a troubled mind. It is easy to understand people born into a religion not questioning too deeply, but when you are an adult and you actively choose a new myth to believe, there must be something wrong with you.
 
It is like a kid suddenly deciding that it is a Leprechaun that brings presents December 25th, or a stork collects up his baby teeth. You could understand he believes that original myth, because it was ingrained his entire life, but with no empirical evidence he pitches the original brainwashing and shoves his head in another bucket...that is simply strange.
 
So I am not surprised that converts are more likely to be nuts: they are all nuts, so it is a self selecting sample.
