Jan Udo Holey AKA Van Helsing
Hi people. I need help.
So, my mom has recently gone crazy over a book named (no kidding) "Don't Touch This Book!" by Jan Udo Holey, who has been calling himself Van Helsing ever since he read Dracula (again, no kidding). He believes that Hitler is still alive and living in the South Pole, that the earth is hollow and that it will be taken over by Jews and/or the Illuminati and/or freemasons. Really. Also among his favourites: reptilians, Atlantis, fake Moon landing, ancient aliens, New World Order, Nostradamus, every other fucking thing you can think of. At this point, I'd be surprised if this electric monk does not believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
I've pointed out some of the most obvious ridiculosities above to my mom, and while she doesn't believe them, she kind of just says, "Well, he's wrong about THAT, but that doesn't mean that this other thing I read in the book isn't true." And technically, she's correct - so many of history's greatest minds have been laughably wrong about things outside their field (Watson, Crick, Doyle, Tesla, Newton, Pythagoras and Plato, to name just a few, were batshit insane about at least one thing).
What can I say or do that will make her realize that this dude is just talking out of his ass?
