    About what percentage of what you know do you think is actually true?

    This goes for everything.

    My Dear Daddy used to quote Mr. Franklin, you know, Ben, and say...
    'Believe none what you hear and only half of what you see.' I guess that pretty much sums it up!

    Everything is an illusion, within the three realms, between perception, reality, and the all encompassing actuality, there is no truth. I know what I know, and through this, can do what I can do.

    Just as others claim their faith to their own beliefs, I do so to mine. Therefore, you could state that I think 100% of what I know as the Truth.

    Simply stated, because I know it.

    I don't really know how to answer this question.  By definition, knowledge is a justified true belief...  So I guess you mean to ask what percentage of what you THINK you know is actually true?  Well...If I think it's true, and I have no reason to think otherwise, than I would say the percentage is 0. 

    I cannot foresee into the future when I become older and wiser in order to know what I may be "right" and "wrong" about.  I can only go with what I think now, and keep my eyes open for evidence that could change what I currently believe about anything.

    Probably very little of what anyone thinks is true.
