Why Do People Believe Stupid Things?

Email Print

Sit back and enjoy this rousing Boiling Frogs Post Roundtable discussion where James Corbett, Guillermo Jimenez and Sibel Edmonds ask (and attempt to answer) the vexing question of “why people believe stupid things?” Is it willful ignorance? Moral cowardice? Deference to authority figures’ palatable lies and tasty untruths? Intellectual sloth or cognitive laziness? Or is it a self-imposed mental imprisonment of not wanting to face the inconvenient and unpleasant reality outside their comfort zone matrix? So put on your critical thinking cap and join in the reflective conversation.
