Then, my loser father came along and taught me "1 + 1 = 2" and from there on in, my knowledge was completely limited what with only one option for the answer to "1 + 1 =". I was SO much stupider after that day.

I mean, who cares about knowing truth and reality when you could KNOW. SO. MUCH. MORE.
There's a difference between the revelation of the truth and the elimination of a possibility. One is conducive to level of knowledge, the other is detrimental to it. In other words this example doesn't illustrate my point in the slightest.

Oh, and I'm just going to post this again, because I don't think those it was directed at got it:
If that was directed at me, I don't see why.
I never made any claims about this, though I did provide links about this theory of someone else's that I graciously introduced you to, and never once claimed to subscribe to.
