Arden, I can't believe you are surprise by this.
It has been clear from the start that Davetard's acquisition of notions follows the path from "I want it to be true" to "is there anything that can make it sound plausible" to "It is true!".  That's  all he needs, it's all he's got, and, yes, he truly does not understand that this has the same relationship to finding knowlege that a million monkeys happening to produce the works of Shakespeare has to literature.
It is all about justifying pre-chosen beliefs, not about finding truth.  I mean, why search for truth when you've already got it?
