I once found it shocking how little people knew about basic psychology -
the kind of knowledge you get from picking up a textbook for a 101 college
course. I don't find it shocking any longer.
I also used to find it shocking that people would adopt positions, in
online discussions, that a moment or two of using a search engine would
refute - such as that there were no people, or no professionals, or no
particular-type-of-scientists, arguing in favor of a hypothesis. Certainly
anyone could make a mistake in a moment, but surely people would at least
take a moment to check very strong assertions, or would want to avoid a
claim that could be trivially refuted? I'm not shocked any more, and I
don't expect that any more.
We don't inhabit the same worlds, Ruchira Mathur. You are absolutely right.
