I dunno, but I think I might be incapable of being ignored because I'm the embodiment of truth and justice. Or something like that. I do know that he thinks that proving that he doesn't know how formal logic works and demonstrating that he doesn't comprehend the difference between validity and soundness in regards to formal logic is equatable to demonstrating that logic is bullshit though.

Faced with this immutability of position, the good 34 year old genius has made the only choice open to him: reject that his personal philosophy can be open to debate.
He's pretty much the pope, infalible in his own mind. He'll take any argument and debate and twist it so he doesn't have to self-immolate any philosophy to tied into his being. Such an acceptance that his views/beliefs/faiths were open to discussion, debate and, yes, even refution, would be an utter disaster which would displace his mental rock and spiral him into chaos.
How dare any of us even think that such an outcome would be in our best interest.
Oh, and his whole bullshit on this, remember, he called me flawed for not living long enough and then passed judgments on my demeanour, language and arguments against him as evidence that I was not mature, open-minded and goodness knows what else. He has judged me based on my actions which could be determined as my self-philosophy. Which means his philosophy is above reproach, but mind is shit. And, children, what do we call that?
Religious persecution, obviously.
And for the record, I think you're totally mature and devilishly charming.
