Thanks for sharing this article.

Social science research shows that it's part of the human condition to accept some things without question. At the same time, people refuse to accept things no matter how much evidence is presented--often called denial. We interpret everything we see and hear, and we tend to believe those interpretations: "Seeing something is seeing it as something." People believe what they believe because they want to believe it--they gain something by continuing in a false belief.

You're wrong and you know it. There's no way we can accept that statement. No denying it.

Everyone playing high notes on the trumpet is on small equipment. From my perspective, not a one trumpet note has been played on large equipment. Has anyone seen a trumpet before?

I'm not sure I've seen anything here on the trombone forum so absurdly dogmatic as is cited in that post about trumpet forums... but it's a known fact that trumpet players have no good sense.  Clever

"Wow, yeah, I hate folks like that! I know this isn't aimed towards me, because I only convey the summary of evidence about what I know to be true! Those people don't know what they're talking about."

The takeaway is, what,
(1) don't believe everything you read, and
(2) be conscious when you're stating an opinion, and don't state it like a fact?

I think the takeaway is to have rational discussion, being open to criticism and being willing to offer constructive criticism,  without being overly defensive of subjective ideas.

Well, this leads into a discussion about the challenge of scepticism and whether what we call knowledge is actually belief.

On second thoughts, f#*k it. I'll have a glass of tequila instead.

That's a great article. Internet is full of information, it's interesting but how to sort it out? I think the only way is to be a little skeptic.
