PODCAST PART 2

How do we get suckered?

How do we get suckered so easily? Why are we so gullible?

1. Towards A More Critical And Rigorous Line Of Thinking

2. What is gullible?

Gullible apparently originates from the notion of a freshly-hatched gull (sea-gull bird). A more rigorous word is ‘credulus‘ (credibility, in Latin). It comes from credo (creed), or ‘credit’ or ‘trust’.

Even more interesting according to Wiktionary:

CREDO is from Proto-Indo-European *ḱred dʰeh₁- (“to place one’s heart, i.e. to trust, believe”), compound phrase of oblique case form of *ḱḗr (“heart”) (whence also Latin cor) and *dʰeh₁- (“to put, place, set”)

This means to ‘trust’ or put credit or credence to something is to place your heart in something, to believe in something.

3. Skepticism is good.

Be more skeptical. More suspicious. More wise.
