He is my rightious guide though. To be in denial one must lie to themselves. Something that I am nearly incabable of under his near constant direction and will that I succumb to.

If your domestic partner has so shattered your self-esteem and so fully manipulated you that you consider him above reproach, so far above you that questioning his word is unthinkable, then I am very sorry for you.

So you admit to living in denial everyday? It is an absolute lie to tell someone there is a place of eternal punishment, to which they will go to for just thinking for themselves and following science/evidence. It is a lie to teach children that all the answers they need are found in a bronze age stories. It is a lie to tell children that prayer functions any more than an emotional sedative. It is a lie to ignore a mountain of evidence supporting human evolution, to be certain that a magical fairy swirled up a man out of dust, and a woman from the dustman's rib.

You lie to yourself every day, which is your prerogative. But what is worse, and quite disgusting, is that you knowingly lie to children and stifle their abillity to question and explore the world around them. "Follow this heinous holy book or else" - you are a pathetic and dishonest, slimy weasel..

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

Change while you can, or join the fellowes of the fire. In your particular case... I'm indifferent, unfortunately.

In an unrelated thread I was looking at some Jethro Tull lyrics and it occurred to me that they pegged you quite well:
"And in your pomp and all your glory, you're a poorer man than me
As you lick the boots of death born out of fear"

Sounds like the two of you need relationship counseling.

Being knowledgeable and happy sound pretty good to me. Thank you.

Idiots don't lie. They don't know how.

Hey look more assumption, that's great buddy. The fact that I do not lie has little to do with the capacities that I held before now

You may be happy, but you are not knowledgeable. At least you have not demonstrated that here. Delusional and happy would be nearer the mark.
