This is the first of three You Are Not So Smart episodes about the "backfire effect." In it, I interview a team of neuroscientists who put people in a brain scanner and then challenged their beliefs, some political and some not, with counter-evidence and then compared which brain regions lit up for which beliefs. The crazy takeaway was that for political beliefs, but not for others, people seemed to react as if their very bodies were being threatened by the challenging evidence. We dont treat all of our beliefs the same. If you learn that the Great Wall of China isnt the only man-made object visible from space, and that, in fact, it’s actually very difficult to see the Wall compared to other landmarks, you update your model of reality without much fuss. Some misconceptions we give up readily, replacing them with better information when alerted to our ignorance.

Most popular and relevant alternative media websites and social media pages are now being affected by this heavy censoring, including the ones related to PrepareforChange.net. What is the resistance planning to do to counter this desperate attempt from the cabal to stop the spread of truth? COBRAActually this pathetic attempt will back fire because when people who are only reading the main stream media learn about the so-calledfakenews, they would like to find out what is about this “fake news”, so they will start searching for alternative media and especially when lists of so-calledfake news sites” are published in the main stream media. It’s free advertising for those alternative web-sites and it brings more traffic to them. It is like the presidential race when he (Trump) was given a lot of publicity, free publicity in the media they were against him, but they gave him a lot of publicity and this was part of his key to his success.

6. This year, he traveled back to Pearl Harbor for the anniversary — but as he tells Hawaii Public Radio, Smith doesn't like to see the roster of the dead that's memorialized in the harbor: "Half of the West Virginia's ballplayers were killed, and all of the Arizona's ballplayers were killed." Article continues after sponsorship From Arizona Public Media comes an interview with USS Arizona survivor Lauren Bruner, who was 21 when the attack came. Bruner, who's now 96, was in charge of fire control for the ship's guns. He was among the last to leave the ship — and he did so with two bullet wounds and burns on more than 70 percent of his body. "Schools were closed, mail was censored, and food and fuel were rationed as Hawai'i was put under martial law," Hawaii Public Radio reports . Barbara Del Piano says her family was about to eat waffles after going to church when news of the attack came.

Investigators Continue Recovery Efforts From Oakland Warehouse Fire Dec. 5, 2016 When asked if he should be held accountable for the disaster, Almena — who has been accused of failing to correct unsafe conditions — said, "What am I going to say to that? .

Physics and chemistry are still inside the umwelt. There’s no escape. “If our perceptual systems evolved by natural selection, then the probability that we see reality as it actually is, in any way, is zero. Precisely zero,” said Hoffman. Well aware that these ideas come across as woo, Hoffman welcomes challenges from his peers and other interested parties, and in the interview you'll hear what they've said so far and how you can investigate these concepts for yourself. Also in the show, Hoffman explains his ideas in detail in addition to discussing the bicameral mind, artificial intelligence, and the hard problem of consciousness in this mindbending episode about how we make sense of our world, our existence, and ourselves.
