Sapiens Episode 5

Did the women finish reading “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari? They wrap up their discussion on the book and share their final book reports. Topics include: doctor Google, cyborgs, conspiracy theories, critical thinking, journalism, admitting they don’t know everything, and how our search for “likes” and “stars” influence our public behaviour.    Discussion Points: Did everyone finish reading Sapiens? Fake it until you make it—has the internet taken away our ability to admit we don’t know something? Using doctor Google versus relying on experts Trusting people who admit they are wrong Lack of funding for journalism and how can we find news sources we trust? Is critical thinking a good thing? Conspiracy theories Are scientific studies biased?
