Yes you are wrong. You know, like most anyone, that 7 times 9 is 8976544.
If you have doubts about your knowledge states, count

Am I wrong to presume that all knowledge is at best presumption?  So all of 
this is just "let's assume that..."?  It doesn't matter, of course, but I'd 
kind of like to know because, well, you know, my emotional life, it sort of 
matters to me and I don't want to get all bent out of shape over a 
mispresumption. I realize that my presumptions nothing more than the product of 
my world -- the old "Always already immersed in a  world" thing, you know?  I 
am my culture and I don't know if it's possible for me to ever be not my 
culture, even when I reject parts of my culture, that too comes out of my 
culture.    But I would sure hate to get all worked up only to realize that 
what I was all worked up over was just mis-presumption on my part, stemming 
from my unique culture. That, in fact, I could be completely wrong about my 
understanding of everything. EVEN what I'm writing right now.  But you've got 
to admit that that's highly unlikely -- I mean, come on, a man of my 
intelligence  -- wrong??  Get real.  So I presume I right in all this.
