They can’t all be right

The more I read, opinion and interpretation disguised as fact, the less I think any of us are able to understand the complexity of the world. Some can tell a plausible story, some can tell their story in an elegant way, and some can augment that with scholarly references. Nevertheless for any position, however well articulated, there will be others, equally articulate, taking an opposing stance. They can’t all be right, but there is no guarantee that any are.

I suppose this is just a restatement of some form of skepticism.

Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth. — Marcus Aurelius
