Well, not really. If the emperor's naked and folks have faith that the person who told them he was clothed was telling the truth, isn't that misguided, since the truth is...

Okay, better with this: two plus two is not three, no matter how much faith you have that it is.

So it's not simply misguided to others, is it?

Oh, yeah. Outta mine, too!
