Imagine a friend has a benign delusion. He thinks he's an alien orphan left on the doorstep by aliens from the Epsilon Eridani system. He doesn't accept his parents as his "real" parents. Do you argue with him about it?
Sounds an awful lot like something else... 🐸☕️
I'm not sure there would be a point to argue, and if there was, to what end?
You really can't argue with that kind of thinking.
Arguing would be futile. Ignore them and call the medics when they get to the point of being injurious to others or themselves.
Epsilon Eridani is just another name for the insane asylum.
Just call him stupid
The boy needs help...
Get him a nice roll of aluminum foil.
When you said Epsilon Eridani, I thought it was gonna be a Halo reference. That system is pretty important there.
But I'm not even friends with Dennis Kucinich...
My mother-in-law thinks she's half alien and that one of her brothers is half demon.
I would if it meant the result would be getting something I needed etc. No Chris Haversham, you are not a ghoul! The wasteland is full of goddamn Sunset Sasperilla, but you cannot find one mirror!? I should not need a speech skill that high for this!
Haha, my system censored a word starting with a g and ending with an n, now what could that be?
Does he sound like he's from Epsilon Eridani? That's an easy tell.
Don't forget the smell, as in BO, I mean garlic dipped in Nutella is pretty telling 😎
I couldn't be friends with someone like that. Just like I couldn't be friends with someone who says Sandy Hook was a hoax.
Much like religion, neither of us can prove anything and I'll never convince him otherwise. So as long as he's not hurting anyone, why would I bother?
Meh, I'd see it as a sort of a challenge. I'd ask if he's ready for a DNA (paternity/maternity) test though he'd probably refuse.
"My DNA was programmed to mutate. Of course it matches 'my parents.'"
