John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. 40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. 41 I receive not honour from men. 42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you. 43 I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. 44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. 46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me.  47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Pandemic Saturday

This video is appropriate when discussing the danger of the pandemic, especially when it comes to deniers and anti-vaxxers.  It is unfortunate (but apparently inevitable) that so many people cling to utter nonsense in relation to Covid-19.  As long as their numbers remain high (and there is no reason to believe they won't remain high) conspiracy peddlers on the internet will continue to cash in on these idiots.  Along with being "stupid" and a danger to everyone else, their condition is confounded by the Dunning-Kruger effect: a problem of metacognition - the ability to analyze one's own thoughts or performance.  Those with limited knowledge in a domain (and those who soak up misinformation) suffer a dual burden.  Not only do they reach mistaken conclusions and make regrettable errors, but their incompetence robs them of the ability to realize it.  What makes it even worse for the stupid is a little "confirmation bias".  They tend to seek out, interpret, and recall only information that confirms their preconceived notions and ideas.  In other words, people attempt to preserve their existing beliefs by paying attention only to information that confirms those beliefs and discounting information that could challenge them.  83,91,61,0,B
