          ...I don't believe that 2 + 2 = 4. I know it. I don't believe that the speed of light is 300,000 km/sec. I know it. Such knowledge is true.

          I can't know an issue of morality is right. I can only believe it to be so. But my belief about such matters often clashes with the opposite beliefs of others. So how can a belief be true?
