how can really intelligent people come to different conclusions?

“Do you ever wonder why it is that many of history’s titanic intellects managed to come to radically different conclusions? The answer is simple: If you begin your system of thought by refusing to acknowledge what you know to be true—if you start with a lie—the more brilliant and consistent you are in following that premise, the further from truth you will go.”
