LIVE CHAT With Damon Horowitz: When have you realized that you were wrong about what you once thought was right? June 8, 2011, 5-6PM EDT
You're right. Time fixes everything. You might be interested in Zeitgeist: Moving Forward. It's about our society/economy today and the one fundamental aspect of our daily life which contributes to the most pain and suffering: money. This might just be the way of our future: a society without profit motivated corruption, where 'volunteer' and, believe it or not, "robots" will misplace the "work", or "slavery" of today.

Humans are too stubborn to admit they are wrong, so they continue to latch to the beliefs they have held onto for so many years so they don't look or feel foolish. I don't mean to sound conceited but I'm a pretty heavy philosopher too, and I feel I totally understand what you mean by this and have always thought the same myself. It's called confirmation bias.. Well, a lot of it anyway. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias This is one of the chief banes of human existence. Without it, we would understand and progress as a society into the right direction.

Sean Carroll: Distant time and the hint of a multiverse
You have to remember that, altho this may sound silly, humanity has discovered the atom, the energies that surround us, our position in the solar system, and so on because of the technology we use to conclude from observable experiments. As a result, it's more reasonable for us to believe, from the science and nature that encompasses us all and from the knowledge we can currently apply to science, that even an iota of it is truthful, than to believe that a humanoid figure created it all. Remember, humans like to put order on random chaos. Look at religion, and then look at politics. Until an experiment physically proves the generally accepted to be false, I, personally, will continue to think it is true.
