being: All wars begin with lies.
Demanding the truth first before all else. But this takes courage to
stand against enormous "knee jerk" pressure. I never forget the fact
that Governments want war first then the people are lead in to them,
never the reverse.

excluding things that don't conform to our preconceptions doesn't work, either. confirmation bias is dangerous in historiography, especially. for example, when we're focused more on philosophy rather than facts. philosophy is intangible and subjective. facts can be verified or proven false with evidence and science.

Your statement: "excluding things that don't conform to our preconceptions doesn't work" is certainly not in the spirit of facts, evidence and science.
However, my philosophical component: that "All wars begin with lies". Is
most firmly based in fact, evidence and science and one more item that the
enlightened tend to ignore as if it dose not exist and that is TRUTH.
[Gk. philosophos = lover of wisdom] and [Christian = lover of truth and Christ].
And one more thing that needs mentioning - It takes far more courage to face the truth then it dose to toy with facts, evidence and science.
