  •  I watched that show and found it fascinating (6+ / 0-)

    I especially was taken by the "snake" in the tree. No snake, btw, but once people convinced themselves they saw it they went all the way by giving a play by play on it's movements and when told it didn't exist they had a hard time accepting it. I started thinking about mass sightings of UFOs.

    I think that one of the things that the whole Fox News Nation thing comes from is that people who watch it get nothing but constant reinforcement of whatever idea it is Fox is pushing. No questioning of the story, facts be damned, a giant circle jerk of one mind set. If we don't question what is told us, we could just as easily be there. Anyone could.

    Intellectual curiosity is vital.
