Quote from: RandallS;36431
For some people racism (and the like) is a belief, but it can also be (bad, IMHO) knowledge if it is taught as knowledge. People in some areas in the Southern US at one time were taught in school that blacks were inferior to whites using textbooks that presented "factual" evidence that this was so. Germans in the 1930s were taught in school that "Aryans" were superior to all others with "facts" to support it. Just as gravity or history is taught. This information was presented and treated as knowledge -- bad knowledge for people to act on, IMHO.

 
And really, the stuff when it's in people's heads all looks like the same stuff.  It's all very well and good to stand outside and declare from on high that this bit is belief and that bit is knowledge, but really, from the inside the crap data and the good data is all just "the data that's in my head".  It's not like it comes with little "This information is actually crap!" stickers.

Such as The Irish Potato Goddess or about 80% of what's on The History Channel these days?

 

Gods I miss The History Channel, back when they did specials on real history instead of things like Ancient Aliens. My television choices are pretty much narrowed to Netflix now.

Great to see this topic, I had no idea you guys were already addressing something that has been weighing on my mind.
