It's interesting that you take the trouble to
try to map the situation. I find that with some folks, I am wasting time and energy with any attempt to explain that:
" 2+2=4 until further notice "

There are endless ways to misunderstand an idea. There are also many possible motivations for so doing.

An agnostic might know better than someone who "Knows." The agnostic could discuss the technical issues while the "knower" is being a brazen guesser.

As Mark Twain would say,"Our world's little problems go unsolved. It is only the big questions where our uncertainties disappear."
(paraphrase)

Add to that a generation raised on TV and we're in for a big sea change. Hope it's a good one!
