I am certain that no one here has any illusion about convincing ftk of anything - in fact, the fact that that is an impossibility is one of main conclusions people have come to.

More broadly, I think that many of us - I for one - have sort of a perverse fascination with belief systems that are so tightly protected that they are impervious to outside influence.  Exploring the contortions such people go through to avoid points that challenge their world view, and watching the ways they deflect issues in order to avoid cognitive dissonance, is a fascinating psychological study.
