Adam is much harder to confuse than you think, or than he professes.

Speaking of burning it all down and starting over.  If you want a
house-related analogy, that's not quite correct.  It's refusing to
build an extension because the old house, while legally fit for
habitation, is falling down around your ears.  Since you only need
foundations, it's not that big a job (though I'll grant you that it's
bigger than many people realize, even with that smaller scope).
