I was going off your last sentence, Tim and was trying to find the site where I read an article about how (something like) 60% of nuns are over the age of 60 or 70.  I couldn't find it, but eventually, the "delusions" will fade away.  Even if it is not in our lifetime, it will fade eventually.

I did (in trying to find that site) come across this and found it very interesting.

Anytime one points out to delusional people that their beliefs are in fact delusional, the only defense they can mount is to attack the person doing the pointing out.
 
Nobody wants to be seen as a fool. Worse, nobody wants to have to face one's own foolishness.  Admitting that you have been scammed and made a fool is tough business! This is one reason perhaps for the longevity of religious delusions!
