41. It has nothing to do with science or knowledge, it has to do with
"reality".

The perception of "reality" is shaped by experience. If the only experience you have is with elders and teachers who tell you that the world was created in 6 days, then by golly the world was created in 6 days.

If your experience is that everybody knows that strapping a bomb to your body and killing the infidel will get you 72 virgins in heaven, then by golly get the Viagra ready!

What is "real" to one group is not "real" to another.

To say that anyone has a firm grip on what reality is flies in the face of, well, reality.
