I HEARD ABOUT THAT

Academic_procession

Overheard on the bus:

“Yeah, I heard about that already”;

 “Sure, I know about that”.

 “Oh yeah, everybody knows about that already.”

“According to a double-blind study…..”

 

What is more important to you when gathering information? Being among the first to know? Accuracy? Popularity?

When you seek information on Google, Yahoo or Bing do you check for accuracy? Do you first scan the document for signs of propaganda? Can you explain in twenty-five words or less the difference between Truth and Proof?

Do you understand the goals of scientific inquiry or why the goal of proving anything destroys any possibility of discovering truth?

 

‘Didn’t you know…..?’

“Oh sure, I know about that”.

“you can bet that everybody knows about that already.”
