Brent,
This is obviously so. and it is not arguable against.

It  is an observable fact.

It is an observable fact that most of a society may believe falsehoods. So it is NOT an observable fact that most of a society believing something makes it true.

is obviously true that if you live in a society where everyone take something as true , no matter what, then it is true for one of its members, you, for example.

That's relativist post modernism. And it is not 'obviously true' it is only 'true' per relativist post modernist philosophy (which thankfully is on the wane). To write 'true for you' is to already to make 'true' meaningless. Whatever Cardinal Bellarmine thought or what his society thought, it was still the case that the Earth orbited the Sun.

as to claim that Jesus was not born of a virgin."
