This question came to me earlier and I’ve been thinking about it since. I was looking up some information and I found three different sources with three different versions of events purported to be the truth. In the age of the internet, misinformation is all around us, but even without the internet information is based on experience or interpretation. What, if anything, can we actually take to be true? Most, if not all, of our knowledge is based on what we are taught by others. You only need to look at the flat earth crowd who primarily state their beliefs are due to compelling evidence presented on YouTube.
I saw it written the other day that the only way to counter misinformation was to flood people’s minds with better quality and better informed information.
Add in to the mix the things we know we don’t know about life and the universe, and what are we left with, other than this single simple human life where we are born and then we die, or do we?
