“Definition of stupid: Knowing the truth, seeing evidence of the truth, but still believing the lie”

“Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies” is a saying that has been printed on many images.
   
“Definition of stupid: knowing the truth, seeing the facts, but still believing the lies” was posted on Facebook by Elia Isho on October 26, 2010. “The definition of being stupid: seeing the truth, knowing the truth, and choosing to still believe the lies…” was posted on X/Twitter by kathleen webb on April 10, 2011.
 
“Stupidity is seeing the truth,knowing the truth, but still believing the lies” was posted on Facebook by Leslie McCauley Gill on May 11, 2011. “Definition of stupid : Knowing the truth, Seeing the truth, But still believing the lies !” was posted on X/Twitter by Gena (and many others) on August 11, 2011. “Definition of stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies….” was posted on X/Twitter by Dr. Robinson on October 25, 2011. “stupidity is KNOWING the truth , SEEING the truth , but STILL believing the lies” was posted on X/Twitter by 泻褦褦褦馃拫 on July 16, 2012.
 
Some variations add the word “evidence” and change “lies” to “lie.” “Definition of stupid: Knowing the truth, Seeing evidence of the truth, But still believing the lie!....” was posted on Facebook by Hajrah Nanyiti Sseguya on December 12, 2016. “Definition of STUPID…knowing the TRUTH, seeing the EVIDENCE of the TRUTH, but…....STILL BELIEVING the LIE” was posted on X/Twitter by “ma lyss a” on June 4, 2017. “Definition of stupid: ‘Knowing the truth, seeing evidence of the truth, but still believing the lie.’ (attributed to Morgan Freeman, but may be wrong). #quotes” was posted on X/Twitter by Vito Botta on January 1, 2024.
 
“Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth, listening to the truth and still believing the Lies - Morgan Freeman” was posted on X/Twitter by Tebogo Letsoalo on December 11, 2017. Snopes examined this on September 12, 2022, and determined that American actor Morgan Freeman should not get credit for the saying, although he possibly said it after the saying had become well known.
 
“Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies” was posted on X/Twitter by Prof. Feynman on May 10, 2020. “Stupidity is knowing the truth, seeing the truth but still believing the lies. And that is more infectious than any other disease” was posted on X/Twitter by Prof. Feynman on June 20, 2020. There is no evidence that American theoretical physicist Richard Feynman (1918-1988) ever said this.

Did Morgan Freeman Say This About Stupidity?
