More truth and a bit of a reality check...
These words are not unimportant. They are not trivial. They underpin everything we believe.
And we take our beliefs very seriously, don't we?
So seriously do we take our beliefs that we happily sell our soul to religions. We are even quite prepared to wage wars in foreign lands, killing millions, based on our beliefs.
And yet, it is easily demonstrable that most of the "facts" and "truths" for which we have sold our soul and killed millions are so flimsy they would never survive in your average court of law (in which we swear to God(?)).
