Many people treat information like they are in a cafeteria line, taking what they like, skipping what they don't, and completely avoiding anything that smells funny to them.

even better, replace "information" with "truth"

@PhilboydStudge yes, but i was thinking "facts"

who's truth or who's facts VanZinc said it everyone take what info fits with their beliefs and ignoring the rest. Humans such a discriminate crowd.

@PhilboydStudge yes, but i was thinking "facts"

I toyed with that as well. Settled on "information" based on everyone ignoring my previous post about al Jezeera.

@sabachthani even better, replace "information" with "truth"

Yes, I wrote it that way and then remembered I had posted an argument a few days ago claiming that there was no "truth" so I figured I'd better play it safe.

this is a great reminder

there are times I fall into the confirmation bias without even knowing it

so if I can acknowledge that I'm acting like the "many people" in this post
I can actively work to discourage myself from treating information like that

@fuzala this is a great reminder there are times I fall into the confirmation bias without even knowing it so if I can...

no you can't you are and always will be as bias as the rest of us if you like cheese bread you will always choose it over garlic bread and so it go with everything and everybody but please try as I will

If you say so.

I am not in a position to
know or judge if
any such actions are
negative

Correct
I will not judge

I will love my
brother as myself

If he strikes me
I offer him a second blow

If he asks for my coat
I give him my shirt as well

So far I have found that
treating everyone with
love and compassion
has kept me from
GSW. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

I hope you realize that most people are probably going to vote it for POTD just because of this.

@VicZinc Cheers!

I have no problem with the post. I just don't think it deserves POTD.

@WolfeDeWary I have no problem with the post. I just don't think it deserves POTD.

OK. I don't think most of the potds do. I'd be surprised if this did. I'd enjoy your video if it does.
