Seeing Is Believing

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.

  1. Seeing is not believing! Ask any magician. They make their living on fooling your senses. Good science though always leads to the truth.
