Today I had something strange happen to me, that to be frank I needed to bite my tongue lest I say something offensive.

I had sent a friend some information on creation that I thought was really interesting. I think the average 8th grader would understand it.
This guy on occasion teaches college level courses on ancient civilizations such as the Parthian Empire. I have also seen him read some thick books on things like that.

His response to me was: "It goes right over my head."

How would you respond to that?

I just realized I said the word "friend" in my OP. The word I should have used was "acquaintance", because although he calls himself a Christian, I have my doubts. He also sends me some very questionable things that he says are facts. For example "the spear that was supposedly thrust into Jesus's side he has seen with his own eyes. He also said that Jesus's mother Mary was buried in England. He says that he has not only researched these things himself, he has also traveled and seen things personally. He also adds that down through the centuries, that this spear has been carried into battle and they have won every battle. Call me a cynic, but...
One time, he sent me a link showing so called proof of whatever it was that he wanted me to see. The first thing I noticed was the person in the link showing these claims was a heretic and false prophet. I told him this and boy did he get upset. He says that he has no idea who that person was, however he could care less because he has done his research and it doesn't matter who gives the information.
Another time, he gave me some information and I checked it out and I thought it was questionable at best. So I politely tried to ask for more proof.
His response was:

I think you get the picture. He gets offended very easily and thinks I should accept everything he says without questioning it.

I have been extremely patient with this man, because I have been able to talk about the Gospel and things like the Bible's account of creation with him. However my patience is wearing thin and I am thinking I am wasting my time with him. I am actually thinking that for now on, unless I start to feel differently, I am going to keep my communication with him to a minimal.

By the way, although I know for sure he actually teaches classes at a local college on historical empires, such as the Parthian Empire. Based on what I am learning about the man, I certainly would not trust the historical accuracy of what he teaches in his classes.
