They don't think insults will win the debate. They just have no other choice.

Cognitive dissonance is a bitch.

"cognitive dissonance is the feeling of
discomfort when simultaneously holding two or more conflicting cognitions: ideas,
beliefs, values or emotional reactions. In a state of dissonance, people may
sometimes feel "disequilibrium": frustration, hunger, dread, guilt,
anger, embarrassment, anxiety, etc".

I think it might be interesting how he would respond to me.



I actually [sort of] invited him here to debate [because he thinks atheists are ignorant and "he squashed atheist on USENET back in the day" {paraphrase}]. I doubt he'll actually show up here, though. It is easy to be in a conservative forum and call opponents "ignorant", "whiney", "twerp", etc, . . . than to come on an actual place where there may be some significant opposition.

If he shows up, he will be . . . theotherberean [if he keeps that username].

Simon, . . . I suppose he could have some cognative dissonance, . . . but I really think he is SO arrogant as to think that he is absolutely right.

Didn't he ask you to join with him to convert the infidels?

Yes - he did ask you Kingsy - he saw your signature and didn't know you were a christee. He apologized, kissed your ass, and asked you to unite with him to do something(don't remember) to the infidel atheists... (with love!) I believe was his clarification for his smarm.
