It alright Ken if you don't get it after a couple years its not gonna sink in.
I'd suggest noticing how "confidence" and "knowledge" evoke the same thing... but I know
better than to expect any sinking there either.
Except, of course, for the obvious fact that people are very confident about things that they do not know, and that turn out to be false. Unhappily, that is a common occurrence. It is not knowledge but belief which "evokes" confidence. People are often very confident about what they believe. But that is different, of course, from knowledge. After all, you can believe what is false. But you cannot know what is false. Although you can, of course, believe you know something that is false. All these different things have to be distinguished from one another, otherwise, confusion results. As you illustrate.
