Why can't Art defend his POV just as everyone else defends their POV? It looks to me like Art wants to post unopposed his unorthodox theory about the meaning of the universe, which is a sophomoric position to take, in my opinion.

Art is no different than anybody else on this score. He has a lot of ego investment in his value system, so when you attack it, you attack him.

Look at our liberal friends. For them it is an Article of Faith that certain things just are. If you point out how our economic problems are the result of failed liberal policies, they don't wanna hear it, so they defend, even when there is no logic to their answers. Attacking liberalism is attacking them.

To Art, belief is irrelevant, except when it is his belief.
