I Dont Know Where To Put This So I Will Put It Here.
I Did A Little Experiment In My Psychology , I Did A Fake Article For The School Paper Called The Dangers Of The Black Widow, it was just nonsense,
stuff like the black widow kill about a million people just in the -universe- per month, and the black widow is evolving into a more super and more
dangerous spider with enough venom to kill the whole human race. And in this article i included phrases like: scientist beleive, scientist said,
and there is a lot of proof.also we putted some pictures, fake pictures but we included under the pictures this words: scientist, proof, and
So after a few days we putted the article on the school paper then we did a statistical survey, to see how many people actually beleive what the
article said. from about 700 asked, 500 believed the article,10 didnt, and the rest just dont read the paper. those 500 were asked why they believed
the article, and they said. --Because scientist said,and we saw the pictures, also because we think the school paper is a reliable source--.
So that make me think, if people think if people think the internet is a reliable source, and see some pictures, or videos, are they gonna beleive
Also if people see stuff on the news and they think is a reliable source, are they gonna believe anything?
and if somebody says scientist believe , or it has been scientifically proven are people gonna believe anything?
this little school experiment make me think, who is a reliable source, if there is any, and who i should beleive, and are people that lazy that they
cant go and look stuff for themselves that they just read or see a very convincing article and they just beleive.
i think just people beleive anything that sounds convincing, but they just dont go a look if its true or not, they just believe it. not only on tv, or
the paper, but also stuff in the internet.
i dont know if u guys know, but there is this site xee-a twelve, that is just nonsense, but people actually beleive it.
so my question for u guys are : who is a reliable source?
why should i beleive the internet, its fictional,and anybody can put just bout anything, so why?
and why should i beleive anything people said, on tv radio, etc, they are just a bunch of liars and fakers, and some with some brain problems so why?
