A SINGLE FACT CAN BE A DANGEROUS THING.

Facts can be a little awkward and when put in the wrong hands can be used to make misinformation.  Facts work best as a team. Very few if any of life's realities can be accurately described using a single fact or a couple of facts.  Multiple facts are needed to give proper context.

A single accurate fact can be misleading.  If a probe landed on earth and took a single photograph of the sky during heavy thunderstorms an alien officer may look at it and conclude that earth's atmosphere is black and violent.  Accurate at that moment, but alone, a fact not showing the true story of our sky.

So when someone wants you to follow along with their story line, don't agree based on a single fact.  It may be true, but needs other facts to be accurate.
