Consider an analogy to what a deeply religious person might say about
God: "There is no way I could be mistaken in my beliefs about God,
because there is no objective standard against which my idea of God
could be measured, and that isn't possible even in theory." I suppose
that's true in a sense, but I would still call someone mistaken if
they believe in something which turns out not to exist.
