If a lie is repeated over and over again, it becomes perceived as truth. This morality story has been told so many times that the morality lie has become accepted.
The reason for the difference in the chinese example, is that it is just a first time question, honestly answered based on history.

“One thing that bothers me about the Christain religion is that it often says you only need to believe that Christ is the son of God and then you can get to this place - this troubles me - it’s like the password that will get you into the party”

Belief here means, put into practice what taught.

Yes, but only if what is taught is true.

There could be two of us, traveler. I am still waiting for you. You know the way… smirk

I could be one now… I’m just really not sure what defines a nihilist.

Nothing.  cheese
