Yes and no. Yes, in the sense that a belief that leads to good action and doesn't lead to bad action is good even if it doesn't meet absolute truth.Beliefs on their own can do no harm. It is what we choose to do with our belief that can cause good or evil.
Yes, there is.Is there a difference between truth and 'a believed idea'?
YESBut Reality IS, regardless of experience. I can agree with you that the mind categorizes memories, so each individual will have a different memory library, based on their personal experiences...each experiences the whole, but in a unique way.
Reality exists whether we believe it or not, it simply is

Yes, you can verify a truth for the present. But we live in a reality that always has an uncertain future and our natural and created tools of information have limited spheres of access. The truths of scientific medicine in the past are very different from its truths today. Even with science as the best system for finding the closest approximation of a truth over time, what is disseminated to the public may be intentionally altered into a deception for personal gain by those claiming to speak the truth.
OK, but this is done by those seeking to exert political power at the highest levels.Due to ongoing but not so commonly paraded facts like the replication crisis, fields of science like biology, medicine and psychology in particular are not the rock hard bastions of truth we are led to believe.
Agree fully with that! The major powers are bumping heads and some newcomers on the scene are also flexin' an' posin'! The US, which became the strongest nation on Earth, through the practice of deception and genocide is now facing threats both within and without which means everyone is on high alert and pretty twitchy. I am curious to see what the world will be like within the next 3 years. Got a feeling that some serious fun is about to unfold and since I have no responsibilities or reproductions and am only eager for death(though not directly through my own hand), I can watch these changes with no fear and am watching with interest.These times we live in now are not typical times. I'm afraid we are in interesting times...in the Chinese curse sort of way.
