Last year I learned that charts change hearts and minds better than words do. Our brains process visual information better than text.
I was reminded of this human tendency when I read in The New Yorker about the burgeoning Flat Earth movement. Members became believers when they saw YouTube videos claiming there’s been a coverup and that the Earth is actually flat.
This 2017 video sparked controversy as viewers tried to process his intent. Satire or Science?
Seeing is believing.
