>...There is a good reason -- you're talking to a Believer, who thinks that
would irreversibly kill him. This is like LDS members, who'd rather die than
accept blood transfusion as a life-saving measure...

It is easy to get these conflated.  The Jehovah's Witnesses are the
no-blood-transfusion, bug you at your own home people:


The LDS (Mormon) are the Two-young-guys-in-white-shirts-and-black-ties group
with the terrific genealogy resources, who bug you only if you ask them to,

The Christian Scientists are the All-diseases-are-in-your-head people.

The Seventh Day Adventists are the vegetarian go to church on Saturday

Believers are mostly known for their quirkiness, but each group has its own
specialty quirks.
