The last sentance is where we disagree, many theists do have childlike mentalities. Our particular little troll does seem to be extremely well brainwashed. Neither one of us can say for certain, but from what I've seen so far I do believe he has fooled himself well enough to believe he is a truth teller. He keeps alluding to certain past experience, "If you knew what I knew" sort of stuff.<quoted text>
So if you claim there are aliens on Pluto while having no knowledge that this is true are you a liar?
If you calim you have won the lottery prior to checking your ticket are you a liar?
I say yes.
I doubt very much RR is a child so that does not excuse him. He KNOWS he lacks evidence. he knows his beliefs REQUIRE faith.
