I don't think he was being aggressive. I think he felt his dopamine slipping away, so he felt obliged to retreat to the illusory safety of his elaborately constructed belief system, which is so unwieldy he can't take it anywhere. Like an eel in a cave. If it were truly useful he could go roaming all over the place with it and be able to defend it on any turf at all, effortlessly. Like a shark. Whose teeth are made of actual science.

It seemed to me he was being stiffly polite but not abusive.
The fact he won't consider his own story at this point means he's precontemplative about learning how to use Occam's razor on himself.
He is closer to it, now that Byron has had at him.
