Dogmas lead to indoctrination. The pursuit of truth leads to education. Indoctrination forces beliefs upon us. Education teaches us to think for ourselves. The digital era bombards us with information, so it's important for us to question what we hear, read, and think. Now more than ever, we should explore logic, semantics, critical thinking, ethics, and cognitive biases to help us filter fact from fiction, and to help us think and act responsibly.

People, thinking for themselves, reject all that. Deal with it.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, i agree with the education and doing our own research. Very true! we can take what we've learnt and then come to our own conclusions. I don't read anything that is to do with religions or politics to history as it's a matter of opinion, least with science theirs more research that goes into things but we cannot guarantee that everything they tell us, is the whole truth.
