Life's irony

The events of the last several weeks (in my life and the world) have made me realize something.

It is much easier to make someone believe a lie than it is to convince him of the truth.

A lie will persist regardless of any "reasonable doubt." The truth, on the other hand, requires absolute and undeniable proof to be deemed valid. With the immeasurable free time* I have had recently, I find that these conditions apply to almost any issue today. For example:

- the disproved link between autism and vaccinations
- the effect of greenhouse gases on climate change
- Donald Trump and everything he believes
- every misleading interpretation of the Bible regarding love, sex, and marriage
- my parents
