Sharon; 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".

Message-ID: <5C17472C-A902-477A-90D6-8B6062FBCF96 [at] sharonvillines.com> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8 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.
