Invisible certainty

Sr Stanilaus Kennedy has uspet the cart for a lot of people by exposing as myths their certainties and things impossible to change. Here are some footnotes on certainty and invisibility:[Tintin - Turing - Berger - Berkeley - Brandeis - Barkis - Christie - humane killing - prayer - southpaws - thumps - smacks - blacks - the gays - psychosis - teaching - prisons - patriots]
It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.” Mark Twain. The point about most of those pieces is that there is a lot which we take for granted, think is normal and so unexceptional, we assume that everyone knows this already . . . and that what we know is correct. All wrong!
