*Happy #EarthDay!
“...the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.”
This photo of "Earthrise" over the lunar horizon was taken by the Apollo 8 crew in December 1968, showing Earth for the first time as it appears from deep space. Astronauts Frank Borman, Jim Lovell and William Anders had become the first humans to leave Earth orbit, entering lunar orbit on Christmas Eve. Bill Anders snapped this picture of the earth. According to NASA: “The late nature photographer Galen Rowell described this photo as “the most influential environmental photograph ever taken.””

I simply cannot understand other people's points view in regards to climate change and evolution when doubting the existence thereof. Ignorance is one thing, but willful ignorance is unforgivable and when all of the data and science is public record, there is no decent excuse for being malicious or just lazy.

But no... Perhaps it's more nuanced than I presume. Perhaps I should ask where the information these deniers have so sought after came from in the first place. I, personally, am largely independent of major news sources and aggregate my content carefully. Should I assume others would be so diligent? That may be too much to ask for some, it would seem. It would take an intellectual upheaval most are not prepared to undergo.

This great wealth of information our species has amassed is accessible with just the click of a mouse or the tap of a phone in most countries and is not esoteric; it speaks to the very nature of our reality. Why then are individuals so entranced by misinformation that they would choose specious logic and anecdotal arguments rather than research and the never ending search for a thorough and solid logical foundation for their worldview.... It's pitiable.

I say it again; discernment is key to understanding reality. Our brains are susceptible to cognitive dissonance and cognitive bias. Our perceptions of reality have to be vetted and tested. Something that I try to do every chance I get. However, other people do this as well, but miss entire swathes of their presuppositions and choose to leave them erroneous and unsupportable. Why is this? Why be so selective? I hope to understand one day, because only with understanding can change be effected.
