"[He] has hit maximum cognitive dissonance, and is collapsing into 'faith.'"
This is such a beautiful expression that I feel obliged to thank you for it before I begin pirating it for my own purposes.
Just as a neutron star, after reaching maximum density, will collapse into a black hole, so too will a mind, in the throes of cognitive dissonance, finding it can no longer reconcile the inherent contradictions of irrational beliefs or wishful thinking, surrender to the last refuge and seek shelter in faith.
That's one more I owe my community here. You people are the best!
