    Jacque Fresco - People Have Opinions About Everything (YouTube)

    People need to learn how to say "I don't know" & the worst thing people can do is to believe that anyone has a right to their opinion:

    I somewhat agree with Jacques but i think it applies to everyone , even scientists and specialists. nobody can be sure of anything so in fact nobody knows.
    the problem is not necessarily with having an opinion but with having certainty. i also don't think that only specialists should have a say... if you want to go to the moon you can get help from historians, science fiction writers, psychologists, fitness instructors etc...... not only rocket scientists.

    we need to be careful of argument from authority.

    Yes indeed.....Even JF can admit when he doesn't know something.....

    As for 'Authority' (any authority) ....all it needs is infinite Questioning... ...as in "Question Authority" ...relentlessly

    However;

    "Everyone has a Right to their own opinions"...(its still called Free Speech, where would this place be w/out opinions?)....

    What we don't have a right to is the right to dress up or present our opinions as facts....(SEE FOX TV for examples)
