Whatever the reasons some people are simply unteachable. For someone to be taught they have to earnestly want to learn you can't force them to learn.
The best thing to do is just ignore their outbursts. More times than not they are just seeking attention and if you give that to them they will keep
repeating the same behavior.
In this case it almost certainly is a personality disorder or a severe learning disability; or both. It was evident from the very first post.
I would say that Peter Vlar
has it correct, the traits the OP has shown to depict run very similarly to a disorder within the schizophrenic
spectrum: Abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real, false beliefs, unclear or confused thinking,reduced social engagement and
emotional expression, and lack of motivation. The traits are varying, of course, but nevertheless prevalent. Writing can also be extremely
unorganized, often with a plethora of spelling/grammatical errors.
At first I thought it could simply be Dyslexia (of which I have as well), because his writing abilities are so poor (Although, I usually assume
English is just a second language for them initially, but he's from Florida, allegedly). However, Dyslexics usually have a higher than average
intelligence, and in some cases far above average. It is clear that critical thinking isn't an apparent trait at all.
The continuous drive to push the same over-debunked topics is a pretty clear sign of a mental disability; one that isn't a part of a common theist or
creationist - at least not to this excessive extent.
So, in my unprofessional opinion, we had simply dealt with an individual whom has some sort of personality/learning disorder. So far the traits match
up quite nicely to that of a disorder within the Schizophrenic Spectrum.
I also frequent a psychology forum quite often, and have had some very nice and informative discussions with others whom are schizophrenic. It's a
very interesting disorder to learn about. It's nothing to poke fun at, of course, and I believe all the responses to the thread have been thorough and
respectful. It's just some traits we have to expect from time to time on the internet.
