My dear wormwood, your man has been accustomed ever since. He was a boy to have a dozen incompatible philosophies dancing about together inside his head. He doesn't think of doctrines as primarily true or false, but as academic or practical, outworn or contemporary, conventional or ruthless jargon. Not argument is your best ally in keeping him from the church. Don't waste time trying to make him think that materialism is true, make him think it is strong or stark or courageous, that it is the philosophy of the future. That's the sort of thing he cares about.
