Why do people think they can disagree with FACT?

FACTS are not opinions. They either are or they aren’t a fact. And if it’s not a fact, it’s a lie.

I just don’t get it.

  1. I have this argument with those of a different political persuasion. If I share a story that includes facts, and it’s from a supposedly biased media source, they will invariably declare “fake news.”

  2. Dunno. Maybe people don’t know the meaning? or just need to have an opinion instead of critical thinking, which is different as it is based on creativity and other FACTS? Well, dunno.

  3. We are not currently living in a world where facts rule. We know from the Challenger explosion that facts will be ignored when they do not support the plan of action.

    People are not swayed by facts, they make logical decisions for emotional reasons. They select data to support their desires and ignore data that does not. We all do. We all have some implicit bias.

    We are not always right even if the data appears to support our opinion. But we should always be righteous.

    Right now, we are not having a national conversation about facts, but disagreement over our moral compass and social contract.

    Right now, norms a broken. The guiding principle is winning.
