The most surprising thing to me about the internet. It's how much people think they know. About everything. Religion, Politics, celebrities personal lives... We read an article and we make up our mind. As long as the article has a trusted brand on it, of course. Because we know that trusted brands are always to be trusted. Hell, they are practically our dear neighbors who have never done us wrong.
There is an ocean of literal, intimate human knowledge out there and somehow we believe that if we examine a few glyphs on a wall then we know exactly what is true, and not only do we know it, we know it completely and fully and no one can dare question our fortress of infinite knowledge and wisdom.
I know. It sounds silly, yet if you look around, this mindset is prevalent in post after post after post. Maybe it's time we become a bit more skeptical of our own knowledge and our own ability to process that knowledge. Because maybe we can't tell the whole ocean by a drop of water, and, as someone said, "to err is human."
