Should we really beat ourselves up for feeling gullable and stupid? Is it really a defect that we should be so trusting of others?
Suppose in our creation, we were hard wired for "accepting information as given"? Would this not mean that we were created to be lead by a source of truth? Would humans be more advanced and more peaceful if we had been given only truth in our lifetime? If everything you had experienced in this lifetime had really been founded on truth, would you be happier? Would you have progessed farther in having a meaningful life? Or would a world of 'truth only' have left us stagnated?
Do you think the catalyst of evil in the world has been a benefical thing to advance humankind? Do you think lies have been necessary to mankinds evolution? Or do you think lies and evil have been a chaos that has impeded our success?
Do you find it wearisome having to stop and question everything? Do you think this confusion brought about by deception is a positive thing and the kind of education that humans really enjoy?
Could it be part of our human make-up that we were designed for positive reception of information?
