    Of course. He always has been emotional and over-the-top at times.

    I think the better question is "do you think there's a chance he's lying?"

    And I'd reply yes, and the odds that he is ain't very bad in my opinion, but I don't claim to know that he certainly is.

    Then why are you here? Why the remarks about people being gullible? Why keep saying that it occurs early in life? You certainly seem to be implying that he's lying and anyone who believes him is stupid.

    There's always a chance people are lying. I think it's very, VERY slim in this instance.

    Ok. But with his penchant for over the top exaggeration and paranoia about people coming to get him in his sleep I'd say it's more likely than not that he is either lying or saying that he has macular dystrophy when in reality it's something else that isn't nearly as bad. Of course I'm not claiming to know that he's certainly lying though.

    Ok, with that in mind, would you be inclined to instantly believe someone with Beck's personality and history if they made a claim like that?

    I'm less likely to take that person seriously.

    Only if in the past they'd lied about a personal illness or other personal history.
