Or he thinks I need a really bad analogy that adds nothing to the conversation but manages to insult anyone reading this thread who might hold belief in a deity or deities by trivializing that belief.

That's fine, given the nature of what they are researching, one should not expect that they can know anything near to the whole truth. But unfortunately what happens is that these people write books that present conjecture and theory and "fact" and these books in turn influence public opinion and further lead to TV shows and childrens "learning material" being produced that essentially presents lies as the truth.
