For someone who is so dismissive of subjective pressure, he spent all his time responding to the "subjective pressure" and no time at all addressing the objective mature thinking. We had, what, at least a dozen solid take downs of his argument that he just pretended didn't exist?

No, seriously, there's some kind of psychological syndrome where a not very bright (or competent) person convinces themselves they know a lot more than they do. It was discussed on here a couple of months ago.
