Is Seeing really the basis for Believing?

The notion that “seeing is believing” loses ground when we consider the McGurk Effect. In this video, Prof. Rosenblum demonstrates how the speech effect dominates our perception even though we “see” the movement of lips to be different.

In my book, Discover Your Free Mind, I explore how we are similarly influenced by the society and our culture into beliefs contrary to what may be the reality. Compromising the power of our own inquiring mind thus stalls us from our own perception of reality and the truth.
