It's absurd according to you and others who may share your particular
philosophical suppositions.  But your point is made: those who don't share
the suppositions of a specific group or individual are considered
delusional by that group or individual.  At least that may qualify as a
relativist explanation dogmatically articulated within the terminological
context of "delusion" and "enlightenment."
