Facts maybe just as elusive, though just more reliable, who cares if someone thinks something maybe a "fact", who am I to judge, maybe I don't have
nearly as much evidence as the presenter, maybe they have accessed to unpublished studies or something else classified by the federal governement.
I'm not concerned with things that appear inadequate, many will take them as evidence of possible "secret technology" who am I to judge, clearly we
don't have access to all information with regard to technology.
If anyone has a better solution to these people presenting information that clearly has no ability to go through verification, then please do so,
don't just say it "doesn't exist" or that "everyone knows what are facts". That seems to imply everyone agrees on what current knowledge maybe
circa may 27th 2010. Not everyone accumulates the same data let alone the same opinions about it, some people change their minds as well. Fads come
and go, people will attach themselves to something just because it maybe new or different.
Last month some students discovered quantum effects at the level of viewing with the naked eye, these effects maybe occur not just under a microscope
in a "special" domain of physics, it seems more likely and to me it doesn't seem obvious, yet many had incredible doubts about these effects
occuring in any other larger macro setting and they probably still do which also seems valid as well, this was just one study. Maybe other studies
have been done but I am unaware of it. Yes science can appear distorted, just take the "global warming" hysteria for example, quite a bit of money
was tied up in the science fitting the "tax" systems proposed, so yeah a degree of skepticism helps one ferret out BS.
People still believe in governments and religion , I think "string theory" or "dark matter" maybe makes more sense than those two mythical systems
, we ahve a long way to go, dogmatism seems like something that exists in spite of evidence to the contrary, a sort of belief system that maybe used
to plug up the holes in science, same with theories sometimes, it doesn't mean they maybe not useful, it just shows our ignorance and some of us are
just more certain of themselves about whatever they think, for obvious self centered reasons and to tie up loose ends.
