    Ignorant people follow social norms and don't instead of there own internal logic.

    If you were to believe that something was wrong you than you don't believe it. If you believe something is right than you do believe it. That simply the way logic works.

    The fact that you believe anything means you believe you are right about what you believe. Which is everything you believe in.

    It not hard guys. I'm not accusing you of being intellectually inferior (I.E., Stupid), I'm just saying if you disagree with this statement than you uneducated about how belief works.

    Belief and knowledge are not that same things. It would be arrogant (not Stupid) to say I know I am right about everything. But to say I believe I am right about everything. Is not that same thing.

    Also, I'm not saying I believe I know everything, I simply believe that everything I believe and the few things I know are right. (I know that I exist, I know that I perceive what I believe to be a reality, I know I perceive others that claim the same awareness. I believe these to be truth or right. I also believe they are facts. They are the few things that I am 100% confident on. Its possible they are not facts and everything I believe is false. But everyone needs a solid base to stand on and this is the best foundation I can perceive.

    I'm not saying I'm dogmatic about anything. I'm not saying I believe my opinions tomorrow will be the same as they are today. I'm only saying I believe what I believe right now. I'm sure this (the sum total of my beliefs) will change. (that is something I believe as well)

    Just because you allow for the possibility that you may be wrong doesn't mean you don't assume that you are right.
    I doesn't mean I assume I'm right. I choose from a bunch of unknowns and pat myself on the back if it works out. I can function without believing I am right.

    I can also choose what I want. Not the same.

    There are other situations where I act without any thought of being right or wrong.

    Then there are the times I do things I believe are wrong.

    Your premise is one of the things you believe you are right about that your are wrong about.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.
