The search for TRUTH can only be done by individuals.
Groups tend to search for PROOF.
TRUTH is ever-changing and not relevant to the goals of group stability.
Stability derives from finding and teaching PROOFS of the core beliefs of the group, passing this information along to new members. Newcomers who seek TRUTH must do so on their own time and are usually either scorned or shunned, sometimes even banned from membership, if the TRUTH seeker attempts to share newly discovered, seemingly relevant information.
These observations do not logically conclude that either goal is superior to the other; only that this is the way it is. That’s the TRUTH and I can PROVE it.
