Indoctrination provided painlessly through media and schools:
Just as a fish doesn’t “notice” water unless the creek dries up, we often do not notice the catechism underlying the news stories, which forestalls our asking critical questions. Consider the story from late last summer that announced that chimpanzees and monkeys “have entered” the Stone Age (BBC News, August 18, 2015).
The basis of the claim is that primates smash things with stones, even choosing the stones best suited to the task at hand. But then, so do some birds.
No matter. Because we are the 98%-99% chimpanzee, there is a sure and certain hope that chimpanzees are entering the Stone Age.
Evidence? No evidence would change anything anyway.
