    I dont know, I think you do someone a great service by destroying their illusions. Its a bit like the Matrix, some people dont wanna know the truth, but what about those who do want to know? I dont see anything wrong with telling someone they are wrong, they will beleive what they want anyways.

    Just about forever we believed the Sun went round the Earth, and this is a group illusion.

    And if we didn't expose this belief as an illusion, we would still believe the Sun goes round the Earth.

    Hypatia, the last great Pagan, and the librarian of the Great Pagan Library of Alexandria, was skinned alive and dragged through the streets of Alexandria by the Christians, for exposing their illusion that the Earth is the centre of God's universe.
