Are some ideas wrong?

Ideas and beliefs are typically based on personal experience and values.


The concept of right and wrong /  good and bad is difficult to answer
because this requires judgement based on perceived values , and individual
values and judgement varies.


Possibly you should be asking a different question.    Possibly the
preferred question is "what is best".

There are many sites on the web that discuss the definition of ?idea?. I
won?t summarize them but ideas are usually related to a proposal to act. "My
idea is to design a garden that attracts butterflies."


This is a belief or a fact. ?I believe some gardens attract butterflies.?
?Some gardens attract butterflies." If there is any evidence supporting
superiority, then the evidence would be a test of whether the statement is
factual based on some criterion for ?superior.? Beliefs are beliefs and
often not based on anything.


An idea can be a good or bad one depending on the results expected, etc.,
but it can?t be wrong until there is no requirement for being factual.
