This interesting study, I wanted to post. As when I talk to someone about politics or religion, it’s interesting how when faced with factual information, someone’s views will not change.
"In a series of studies in 2005 and 2006, researchers at the University of Michigan found that misinformed people, particularly political partisans, rarely changed their minds when exposed to corrected facts in news stories. In fact, they often became even more strongly set in their beliefs. Facts, they found, were not curing misinformation. Like an underpowered antibiotic, facts could actually make misinformation even stronger."
“…we base our opinions on beliefs and when presented with contradictory facts, we adhere to our original belief even more strongly. “
