Obviously Eliezer was not familiar with the concept "asymptote".

When he was a kid at a religious elementary school.

When he was an adult who posted that, and clearly did not mean "this is some stupid thing I thought as a kid because I didn't know better".

Actually he says that he wasn't a proper atheist at the time which basically means that he didn't really think clearly about the issue.

I don't think the thought itself is stupid. It just doesn't fit the complexity of the situation.
