You aren't a real cavebear?!

All i know is lies.

That is the nature of human psychology ... the futility of knowing.  Either you don't know, or what you know isn't so ... or if what you know is so, you wish you didn't know ;-)

At least I can always trust that you are a giant, man-killing praying mantis. I don't know how I would cope if even that was a lie...

Your dad or my dad?  Dad-dad (someplace in Iraq I hear)?

No, I would choose a person, preferably historical.  Spinoza is a better choice than Einstein or Darwin.

I agree completely.  Indeed, I was apologizing for MY failure to understand your choice of avatar.  You can't even take an APOLOGY?  Wow...
