No, your ability to tell the truth is broken. Proven wrong, you run away and start snarking.
Just say "I was wrong," and we're done on this.
You won't do it. Like the only god you recognize, you are congenitally incapable of just admitting you were wrong on a fact, no matter how definitively proven.
Hey, why don't you just say "Well, a lot of people are saying. . ." like your hero?
