10. His argument is a convenient lie is better than an inconvenient truth

His alleged non-belief is debatable, but regardless his argument is really not fundamentally different than other religionists' arguments for religion which is to underscore all the flowery feel good parts of religion and ignore all the down sides.

Not surprisingly the same author has a track history of equally flawed conclusions with a similar heavy reliance on the anecdotal. He's a big fan of Eastern medicine, most of which is quackery and argues pseudoscience is really no different than science, based on his own account of turtle blood making him feel better after a cold.
