THE PRAYING MANTISS SAID:
But one’s understanding of God may be mistaken.
Of course, we can turn that around. For I may mistakenly believe I’m mistaken. Therefore, the hypothetical risk of being mistaken must be counterbalanced by the corollary risk of mistaking a mistake. I can erroneously think I’m right, or I can erroneously think I’m wrong. The abstract possibility of error is a two-edged sword.
Doubting falsehood is commendable, but a fixed attitude of doubt ends up doubting truth and falsehood equally. For fear of being wrong, you lose the only truth.
