Have you seen Saturn first hand? I don't think you have so all the information you have about Saturn (name, size, distance, existence) has all been
fed to you from other sources researched by other people. So technically you have no idea what Saturn is without the knowledge of others.
This is a fact of life as most knowledge people have is obtained from others. You learn knowledge from others most of the time, otherwise its called a
discovery. What have you discovered today?
If it wasn't for nasa and other scientist and astronomers providing you with this information, you would only 'know' what you have experienced, and
comprehending our solar system and planets would not be part of that.
So you are willing to believe what you are told about Saturn, that it exists and what it should look like, and you have formed your own idealistic
understanding of the planet. Now when you are shown a 'realisitic' view of Saturn that contradicts your beliefs, instead of being open-minded and
willing to accept and learn new facts, you dismiss them as being fake.
What made you stop accepting the information from others as 'FACT' and start dismissing it as 'FALSE'?
Please do not shun the collective, as it is and has been your main source of information. Believe what your want to believe, but don't ask others to
help you when it contradicts the knowledge of the whole.
Either you are trying to make a point by inferring that 'NO' real images of Saturn exist, OR you are to lazy to find them yourself (in which case we
provided and you dismissed, so you must be pursuing point one).
Someone once said that a wise man does not believe he is wise, rather he accepts the fact that he knows nothing.
