The Amateur Society: Confirmation Bias

DeepDream.jpg

Amateurs,

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 02/12, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at amateursociety@gmail.com. These weekly meetings can be found on Spreaker, YouTube, and on iTunes via the Podcast app.

To a divided America it seems as if there is no longer any agreement on what happens from day to day let alone how it should be interpreted. Every event catalyzes multiple different sets of surrounding conclusions. We are living through a type of societal confirmation bias that is largely unprecedented. What is confirmation bias? How does it affect our thinking? Is there an effective way to understand and to escape its clutches? Will we ever move past this heightened phase, or is confirmation bias in this elevated form here to stay?

Join us for another engaging and informative conversation tonight at 8:00pm!

God bless,

Steven
