Reality v description of reality

Sometimes people make the mistake of confusing a description of reality (be it scientific, religious, or other) for reality itself, when clearly these are two separate things!

Just as an experience is not the same as a description of that experience, so is any description of anything completely separate from the thing itself.  That is why some people say that reality just is, rather than attempting to describe or define its qualities which may make people believe that the description is the reality which is clearly is not!
