4-Debunking Attempts

There have been many attempts at debunking the corrupted cone of learning, linked below are but a few examples. While each of the authors has done a nice job in their own way, my personal favorite is the image below, which summarizes things quite succinctly.

What is also fascinating are the statements by folks who realize that the percentage cone can't be authentic, but use it anyway.  Some examples:
"That being said, I’m sticking to my plan even if I may have been wrongly influenced by these percentages."
So why is it – even though I now know that the percentages are a work of fiction that I really want it to be true – that I still believe it?"
"I will continue to use it [the percentage cone] until you can prove it is not true." (as opposed to I will use it only if I know it to be true)
