    Beliefs are not part of recruiting questions.

    Unless the guy is an unsufferable asshole about that, if he pass the interview, I don't care if he believes about the world being flat, vaccination cause autism, chemtrails, or any other conspiracy, I will hire him.

    It should not be an issue if he doesn't try to proselytize. I would actually argue it's discrimatory to hire someone based on beliefs, whack or not. If however, as is often the case with conspiracy nuts, he tries to convert people to the Truth, he is not suited for any job with people around him...

    No because devs need to be capable of logical thinking.
