If flat earthers are accidentally proving that the earth is round, then would it be self harm?

It's easier to fool someone than to convince them they've been fooled.

Communism is great. Now you can't prove me wrong.

Does this apply when you’re open minded?

Then those people need to get off their high horses and just accept that they were wrong. Don't see it as being belittled, but instead, see it as a way to be better.

Well, if you prove someone wrong, and they become more convinced that they are right, doesn’t that make them stupid?

So, since this covers confirmation bias, I wonder what if Adam would cover other cognitive biases and general behavioral psychology stuff in the future. I know that College Humor already did a reference to the Dunning-Krueger Effect in their WTF101 series, but I hope that they also go into biases such as the blindsided bias and the two thinking systems for Daniel Khaneman's book)!
Also for more info, definitely recommend checking out the You're Not So Smart podcast on psychology and a comic from the Oatmeal dude here: https://theoatmeal.com/comics/believe

EDIT: Also, I definitely recommend people look up more information on confirmation bias rather than the backfire effect, since the latter is still being researched on and there still needs to be some conclusive stuff to follow. And also to take most of the research with a grain of salt, if it's research that can't be replicated outside of a lab and may fall under a Replication Crisis.

So... should I or should I not persuade someone to "step back from that ledge"? Apparently, people are becoming so offended now that we're having to censor rational thought
