X: There's something that makes beliving and knowledge quite different, and that’s truth which isn’t inside one person head but out there, in reality. I’m sure that if we ask this man if he knows there is a dragon in the garage he will reply affirmatively, no doubt about it, but the truth is that there is no dragon and he just think he knows is in there. But the man doesn’t know anything, he believe a lie and he is making excuses to protect the lie, and one of those excuses is that he knows is in there, is not a belief.

I think this is one of humanity greatest weakness; the need to detach from reality and defend beliefs that are obviously wrong, I understand the psychological need to do so, but, in my opinion, still is a sign of weakness. As Eliezer said we should find joy in what is real.
