You ever just have so much time to yourself that you begin thinking about really stupid stuff. I mean like the REALLY stupid stuff you normally wouldn't think about unless prompted? I'm talking about Flat Earthers, Anti-Vaccine people, and the people claiming 5G towers caused Corona and that the lockdown should end even though the virus is still claiming lives. It made me wonder, how can people be such idiots when they have the Internet in their pockets? But from my thinking, I came to the conclusion that it isn't about facts and logic to them, but what they want to believe. They want to believe the Earth is flat, or vaccines cause autism or the towers are making us sick. I didn't really think of this before until I related it to one of my absurd beliefs that I used to believe in when I was still in high school. That everything I want to happen will happen if I think about it and feel sad enough. I know right? Pretty stupid. But I guess what I'm trying to say is that these people aren't complete idiots, it's just that their beliefs and expectations matter a lot more to them than the truth, hoping that they'll find their own truth. I'm not sure if I should call it admirable or foolish, but I can't call them hopeless after all, that's the basis of all our beliefs.
