Superficial arguments

You know what bugs me? When people call climate change deniers stupid.

Same with flat earthers. I mean, we all go about our lives in the same way. None of us is stupid—well, some of us are, but I don’t think it has anything to do with climate change denial or belief in a flat earth.

Want to know what I think?

I think that humans are creatures of story. Humans invest in their stories. The most appealing stories lie at the extremes. So, we scare each other with our stories instead of listening and talking to each other.

That’s what I think. As always, of course, I’m most certainly oversimplifying, or may be flat-out wrong.
