There is a metaphor in this somewhere!

The original Paddle Move
Lately I've been pissed off at people who truly believe an opinion is as worth as facts. As if they are equal.

I'm talking about magic. It was another magician's opinion that a large action covers a small one. While this is factually not true he created a trick which was utter garbage based on that.

His opinion was so much stronger than the fact that it did not fool so I had a discussion about it with him and it took me a while to understand that "the larger action covering the small action"-myth was the reason for his conviction.

So based on that myth he formed his opinion and stood by it in spite of contradicting evidence....

There is a metaphor in this somewhere!
