Judging by the company she keeps.
The problem with fantasies is you can't really insist that everyone else believes in yours, the other problem with fantasies is that most believers of fantasies eventually get around to doing exactly that.

Did the men in white coats come & take him away? Methinks madness rather than a desire to troll, was at the root of his trouble.

Actually I consider it a kindness. Preferable to supporting and enabling their delusions by playing along. ;)

Acute something. Narcissism, perhaps. Incidentally, in German, 'Dreher' means 'lathe operator'. FWIW. What a tool.

This guy was pretty much hoping to be banned, the way he was going. It might have been more interesting to NOT ban him, and watch him run out of steam.

I think that at times people like the OP are banned too quickly. Give'em enough rope and they hang themselves anyway as it is he was providing great comedic value and light relief.

Very low quality stuff. The guy could not get out from under his rock, and resorted to walls of blather.

But god as a young, tanned girl, sitting beside him? Wet dreams any one?

He's not banned from Rationalia. I guess if you want to interact with him, you can go over there. :dunno:

Well, we didn't ban him for blasphemy, did we? If his god is a tanned, nubile 17-year old girl, who are we to complain? The worst he could be accused of is trolling with the intent of winding people up. That's not particularly good intent, but its a whole lot better than other miscellaneous kinds of bigotry and hatred that some internet trolls try to promote.

He could be accused of spamming as well. Easily. He's been linking to his website on quite a number of forums.
