truth doesn’t care

Why do we use our biases quickly, and without a lot of conscious thinking, and use only parts of the information which harmonize with our beliefs, and then use it to establish or decide what is right and wrong?

Once we have an opinion or belief, it’s our nature to want to hang on to it because it feels so good to be without a doubt, right, correct, in the know and on the way.

We add new information when it comes along if it compliments what we already think or believe. And it’s rejected if it conflicts with what we already think or believe. We are all guilty and can change this by becoming more aware.

Science calls this confirmation bias, and confirmation bias gives us reasons to form alliances with like minded folks.

Is it that truth doesn’t care
if it’s recognized
or not?

In the entire universe
can only life
care?
