Cool down, man :-) I may have bad news for you: it's almost certain we will
never be able to know "all truth".

OK, I am not going to prove anyting. It's an *axiom*. You either believe
it or not. What Richard/David R. is trying to convey is that con-artists
try to convince you that you are not capable of finding truth, so you are
confused enough to follow them and believe their religion, Scientology,
Level-3 meme-flexing, or whatever it is.

Dave, please, if you want your memes to survive, whatever you do, don't
trust those people!
