You are allowed to have whatever views you would like, but that does not make them truth.
For instance, my wife believes in ghosts. I, as an empirical human being, do not. I have never seen it first hand and never seen evidence in it (although, honestly I have not looked that hard).
Now, if my wife (or anyone else) had actual proof or I actually saw something that proved my previous HARD view on the subject wrong, than I have two choices:
1) Change my views and accept that I need to expand my understanding beyond my own immediate experience.
2) Keep my views and deny what I have experienced, citing some fallacy or just ignoring altogether.
These are the two options. I believe that I would choose one, but who knows. Maybe the idea of supernatural existence is too much for me to mentally handle and I shore up the old mind vault against intrusion by remaining in denial.
In either case, while I don't believe in ghosts, I am open to the idea that I am wrong, despite being VERY sure I am not. It's ok to push back when you think you are right, but it's important to understand you are not possibly right about everything you "know."
Hell, I still fuck up "advance" vs. "retard" every time I time a bike, despite "knowing" how to time. As such I read EVERY timing post on here just to keep learning.
