I hate to lecture you again, but you jump the gun so often, Birdot.
Words are small, and ideas can become so very big.

It did work. But it was among the most difficult things he had ever done, and when he wavered, he lost it.
Is funny you should criticize him so, because Blossom is aware of the the fact that Dexter lost it. She is also aware of the Divine Intervention and Dexter is most assuredly not, yet she still finds the idea potent.
Tell me, do you find the discussion of these things in the canon to be necessarily linear in their portrayal? I use the sentence rather precisely, given that I have done a half-flashback within a flashback. (ho ho ho)
Before you complained, rest assured, I researched
the comics' entire sequence. Chapters Six, Seven, and Eight, n'est pas? The point is, he is explaining the phenomenon that went down before he slipped out of his center.
Blossom knows this. She has to (I, and the audience have to) tolerate Dexter's (my own) tendency to stretch contexts. Within the canon of the story, Blossom specifically must do so in order to appreciate her relationship with him. He's a big nerd, and she still likes him. This is called 'fidelity'. She isn't just going to interrupt him outright. She's the "Everything Nice" part.
Additionally, the difference in intelligence between Blossom and Dexter, I think, is finer a line than you perhaps imagine.
What might Samurai Jack have to say on the consequences of this, hm? Similar to the Way of the Sword, is it not? And Dexter commented, albeit with one word - though personally I think that reflects rather well on Jack - on Jack's performance and preceding soliloquy. If you compare the two, is not entirely unlike his discussion with Blossom on this page. It's a science versus belief thing that deals with the weight of the means and the ends, methinks.
Let me point it out again: Blossom is NOT stronger than Bell. She is doing what she can to stop the bomb from going off. She is not strong enough to take Bell on in a real fight--threatening Gir is more potent than actually harming him, remember?
Good thing Blossom isn't alone. Then again, neither is Bell. *slow emperor palpatine cackle*
