Right vs. wrong

It’s *always* easier to prove something wrong than it is to prove something right.

To prove something wrong, all you need is one example that shows it to be wrong.

However to prove something right, you need to first prove that there are no possible examples that could prove it wrong…including that which has not yet been discovered, thought about, or tested (see the catch 22 there?)

Which leads to the question, can anything ever truly be *right*?  Just something interesting to ponder…
