If you're trying to open up their closed minds, I'm afraid it's all for naught.

No, just the posted excerpt which their comments are referring to.

First of all, there are three of them, not two, and secondly, the thread is about the excerpt presented.

Why not bring up everything that William James or anybody else for that matter ever said? We're talking about the excerpt presented in this thread and nothing else. Can't you understand that?

SHAZAM!! Fear my selective reading and confirmation bias super-powers!!!

And yet your excerpt says that he's talking about the great religious leaders bob and not you. As you are the follower of a religion and not the instigator of one.
