Disclaimer: I'm a theist but not of the Abrahamic faiths. I have minor biblical scholar and scriptural skills. Also I am not a scientific/legal
or medical expert in any field. Beware of my Contagious Memes! & watch out that you don't get cut on my Occams razor.All of this is my personal
conjecture and should not be considered the absolute or most definitive state of things as they really are. Use this information at your own risk! I
accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences!
in that case I would have a sliding scale from least worst to most worst and my version would look like this....
0]lies [as per your clarified definition].
1]naivety [Standard ignorance. i.e. you just don't know!].
2]disinfo [as per your clarified definition].
3]willfull stupidity [those who should or do know better and still refuse to capitulate to the truth!].
and why I feel they should be ranked liked this is as follows...
0] Perfect for testing the the naive and helping oneself!
1] These people don't help anything except to maybe ask a fluke question!
2] These people willfully muddy the waters for no other reason except to harm and destroy the truth!
3] These people have been debunked and yet continue to wallow in their own crapulance and thereby stink up the place for us all. They harm our sense
of pride in our species and this is far worse than any lie they promote.
Personal Disclosure: I'd prefer a liar to someone who is naive as at least the liar has some handle on the truth so as to actually lie convincingly.
Also you can debate the matter constructively with a liar where as a naive person can't really discuss anything convincingly or constructively.
