What this guy is doing, is what normally happens when ones mind set views are challenged. It happens in everyday life. It happens in both religion and
science apart and together. The difference between the two, is science uses methods that one can see, to prove their point, religion uses a book of
words written for people, at a time when there was very little education, so it was written in a way the masses would be able to comprehend it,
sometimes with an adage to make them use their mind to figure it out.
This is the problem with those who are religious fundamentalists, they take everything from the book literally without using their mind to figure out
the adages, and when they do try to figure them out, it is done with very little, if any logic. They also are so set in their thinking, that they go
overboard with the proof they want others to buy. The peanut butter thing, being a good example.
But I look at it in this light. Sometimes people are not ready to accept reality, and when they are ready, they will, but until that time, allow them
to use what works for them, to get them through their life, as long as it doesn`t hurt anyone else.
