From Joshua Howgego at New Scientist:
Evolution has built bias into our brains – here are the best ways to overrule your instincts and make better decisions about everything (paywall) More.
What? To the folk at New Scientist, we are merely products of evolution who probably cannot grasp reality (it is unclear that there is a reality to grasp). And therefore, even if we thought we were outsmarting anything, it would be an illusion, though whose or what’s illusion is unclear.
If Darwinism, the creation story of naturalism, is taken seriously, there is no I in I. Questions of truth are irrelevant but, of course, power is forever.
Don’t pay for this. Let’s spend our Christmas money on coffee and cookies and take them to unhappy people.
