Michael Shermer: Why people believe weird things
This is a fantastic talk! I believe that people can be mislead for a few internal reasons; People are programmed to look for things that coincide with their beliefs, leading to a perpetual bias. Colloquially, people are looking to disprove the beliefs opposite of theirs, and simply, people are looking for explanations without the proper tools, or just looking for something to believe in.
