Einstein. Don't forget some people in Seattle you've mentioned before and
never wanted to tell us who they were. Here is another example of a person
with high capacity for "dissonant, contradictory beliefs":

A man takes the day off work and decides to go out golfing. He
is on the second hole when he notices a frog sitting next to the
green. He thinks nothing of it and is about to shoot when he hears,
"Ribbit. 9 Iron" The man looks around and doesn't see anyone.
"Ribbit. 9 Iron." He looks at the frog and decides to prove the
frog wrong, puts his other club away, and grabs a 9 iron. Boom! he
hits it 10 inches from the cup.
He is shocked. He says to the frog, "Wow that's amazing. You
must be a lucky frog, eh?" The frog reply's "Ribbit. Lucky frog."
The man decides to take the frog with him to the next hole. "What
do you think frog?" the man asks. "Ribbit. 3 wood." The guy takes
out a 3 wood and Boom! Hole in one. The man is befuddled and
doesn't know what to say.
By the end of the day, the man golfed the best game of golf in
his life and asks the frog, "OK where to next?" The frog reply,
"Ribbit. Las Vegas." They go to Las Vegas and the guy says, "OK
frog, now what?" The frog says, "Ribbit Roulette." Upon
approaching the roulette table, the man asks," What do you think I
should bet?" The frog replies, "Ribbit. $3000,black 6." Now, this
is a million-to-one shot to win, but after the golf game, the man
figures what the heck. Boom! Tons of cash comes sliding back across
the table.
The man takes his winnings and buys the best room in the
hotel. He sits the frog down and says, "Frog, I don't know how to
repay you. You've won me all this money and I am forever
grateful." The frog replies, "Ribbit, Kiss Me."
He figures why not, since after all the frog did for him he
deserves it. With a kiss, the frog turns into a gorgeous
15-year-old girl.
"And that, your honor, is how the girl ended up in my room."
