Unpopular Positions

Presentation at Friendly House titled “Fiddling, or Being Willing to Advocate for Unpopular Positions: a look at a key root of the fact/alternative fact phenomenon.“ Doug Matheson considers what happens when we give ourselves permission to believe whatever we want to believe, and then expect to be respected and to not be challenged. Matheson grew up a missionary kid in India. He spent more than a decade trying to reconcile evidence with his beliefs. When he was 37, he “encountered the straw that broke the camel’s back” and then quietly left the faith.
