Hva­ heldur ■˙ a­ sÚ satt ■ˇ ■˙ getir ekki sanna­ ■a­?

FrŠ­imenn eru be­nir um a­ nefna eitthva­ sem ■eir halda a­ sÚ satt en geta ekki sanna­. Einkar fj÷lbreytt og skemmtilegt. Ţmislegt sem gu­frŠ­ingar geta leiki­ sÚr me­ - eins og t.d. ■etta. Sß nokkur n÷fn sem Úg kannast vi­ (hef lesi­ eitthva­ eftir) me­al annars Daniel Dennet, Richard Dawkins og Michael Shermer og var ■ˇ ekki b˙inn a­ sko­a miki­.

Finnst ■etta svar gott ■vÝ ■a­ er svo fjandi satt.

Mobile phones seem to me to be the latest example of what has become a familiar pattern: anecdotal evidence suggests that a technology might be harmful, and however many studies fail to find evidence of harm, there are always calls for more research.

Martin E.P. Seligman tr˙ir ■vÝ a­ mannskepnan sÚ ekki ill Ý e­li sÝnu.

In spite of its widespread acceptance in the religious and academic world, there is not a shred of evidence, not an iota of data, which compels us to believe that nobility and virtue are somehow derived from negative motivation. On the contrary, I believe that evolution has favored both positive and negative traits, and many niches have selected for morality, co-operation, altruism, and goodness, just as many have also selected for murder, theft, self-seeking, and terrorism.

Neil Gershenfeld tr˙ir ß framfarir. - ˇ ■essar einf÷ldu sßlir segja gu­frŠ­ingar :-)

Roger Schank tr˙ir ■vÝ a­ fˇlk sÚ ˇfŠrt um a­ taka skynsamlegar ßkvar­anir var­andi eigin hagi.

╔g rakst ß ■etta. Athyglisvert, ■ar sem ■etta ß sÚrstaklega vi­ um samskipti fˇlks, e­a eins og Skinner og Cleese nefndu bˇkina sÝna svo snilldarlega: Families, and how to survive them.
