I think you have hit the nail squarely on the head. I also think that by arguing with us it helps them to pretend that they have not totally abandoned reason. They need our help to pretend that they are not doing what they are actually doing which is believing in imaginary stuff to help them cope with reality.

In this case, since he has offered to PM me with "evidence" that his "god exists", (I declined for a number of reasons), I think in light of what he's said in the past, it's safe to assume his life was in some disarray, and he had some sort of "conversion" experience which correlated with some kind of "change". I can understand that someone in that situation would need to hang on for dear life, to whatever the life-line was perceived to be, and not even consider letting go. People in that sort of (moral) bondage, are not really free to examine the questions here, objectively. At least for a while, they need their crutches. Maybe some day they will grow out of it.
But not everyone has such a history of poor choices. They are exceptional cases.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

His initials spell jew.

Well, nothing, but if they did spell something it wouldn't matter what. Tongue

Am I the only one who pronounces his name in my head with a Brooklyn accent?

I DON'T HAZ FAITH IN JEREMY WALKER EEEEEITHERRRR!

Okay, off to teh drunkk thraed nao.

A person very dear to me was badly hurt through a misunderstanding and miscommunication. For this, I am sorry, and he knows it. That said, any blaming me for malicious intent is for the birds. I will not wear some scarlet letter, I will not be anybody's whipping girl, and I will not lurk in silence.

I don't recall getting any kind of answer from him.

I think he's scared of me. It's understandable.

But I'll give him credit for recognising a superior intellect when he sees one.

Your intellect would send chills down the spine of any opponent. He stands no chance, and he knows it as would anyone.

My initials spell FT.

Obviously, I'm supposed to be among the higher-ups.
