We start today’s episode with another student advocating for an idea that they consider to be untrue — and this one’s a doozie.

So, why are we doing this? Why are you about to hear someone make an argument in favor of a flat Earth?

It’s because I want you to understand that what we were taught about the value of strong convictions is misleading — being convicted in your beliefs and being willing to advocate for them passionately isn’t a sign of good character or a considered perspective.

And if you’re rigidly stuck in one point of view, a point of view that you likely developed as a kid before you were even conscious of having a point of view, then you will just keep butting up against reality until, inevitably, you either suffer or surrender.
