As far as I can tell there is no difference except perhaps the need to
impress or as you quoted "intimidate." Perhaps there is value in
intimidating "faith-sufferers" so they don't end up hogging a conversation
meant to explore finding "faith" in understanding, in expectations based on
knowledge. Seems to me the Church of Virus already has the makings of a
priesthood which in my eyes means it is losing validity as a religion that
seeks adherence to science.
