I love this post.
The Misconception: When your beliefs are challenged with facts, you alter your opinions and incorporate the new information into your thinking.

So when it comes down to it, people might be stupid (myself included).
What I'd like you to take from this post is, that you should go to this website...often literallyunbelievable.org hahaha
