  • True If you can admit were you believed wrong or that you were fooled you would be wiser than if you already knew the truth. For 2 reasons. 1 you can admit when you are wrong and 2 you learn a lesson you would not have had else wise.

  • I agree...mostly because there is not absolute truth...point was proven in the other post with a math example. Even though in one base system 2+2=4 it is not true for all base systems.

  • No, finding out that you were wrong about something is always a good thing. But finding out the truth is better.

    Is this the same guy from before? LOL. Why does this guy have such a problem with the concept of truth?

    Unless you are Oedipus Rex and you just slept with your mom and killed your dad and when you find out the truth you are going to gouge out your eyes, the truth is a good thing!!!

    And when it comes to spiritual matters it is the most important thing, IMO.

    Just disturbing to even see this it has nothing to do with the question. Actually the truth is good but not always better

  • actually the truth makes you wiser... You found out the truth that it was an illusion.... so you lose that illusion after finding the truth.
