Diez, sorry for chiming in that lately, but while the whole thread is 
spilled over for no good reason, your QOTW remembered me on a quote of 
R.A.W., that sounds like a perfect fit:

Whatever the Thinker thinks, the Prover will prove. 

And if the Thinker thinks passionately enough, the Prover will prove the 
thought so conclusively that you will never talk a person out of such a 
belief, even if it is something as remarkable as the notion that there is a 
gaseous vertebrate of astronomical heft ("GOD") who will spend all eternity 
torturing people who do not believe in his religion. 

From "Prometheus Rising" by Robert Anton Wilson
