    Does quoting another person, that is saying the same thing as you, make you correct?

    What if it is a person that did something great, like oh I don't know...wrote in the Bible?

    It is possible for you and the person to be incorrect.

        If that person is widely believed to be credible, then it is more likely that you are both right.

        The best thing to do, though, is to research whether or nor you and they are correct.....or not.

    Just by the fact you are asking that question tells me you have the drive to do the right thing so long as you know in your heart what the right thing is.

    Unfortunately, myths have been perpetuated to the point where they've become "truths" to many and passed along that way. If I say "Southeast Asians are not to be trusted" or "Mormons are stone fanatics" and many pick it up and run with it, it is just a perpetuated opinion. So, quoting one who is wrong to begin with does not make another right just because it's been said by many.

    Not necessarily. Man is flawed and the men who wrote the bible were flawed, therefore it is possible that they were wrong, thus making you wrong as well.

    Sorry I just came accross your question and it peeked my interest. Unfortunatly, I do not find the answer so simple. Either that or I was in desperate need to do a little writing. My answer became kinda long
