Upon discovering some truth which runs counter to things you have been brought up to believe in (where there is no doubt to the authenticity of the “new” truth incidentally), there seems to be three common reactions:

  1. Go with what you believe in, even if the whole world thinks you are nuts.
  2. Begrudgingly accept that everyone else is inferior to you but, for day-to-day social acceptance, need to lower yourself to their levels .
  3. Ignore the truth and stick to what you always knew to be correct, and live happily ever after, secure in the knowledge that your world is safe from intrusions.

Which would you choose?
