It was/is not an argument. It was/is a question. Both your answers makes sense.

So... a way to avoid "confirmation bias" is to not have an opinion - on anything - but then, that would be confirmation bias, too - or would it? Hard for me to have an opinion.
For 5 bucks I can just follow you around and tell you what opinion to have, thus freeing yourself from the burden. :icon_rofl:

There could be a market for this... opinions on demand!

No, confirmation bias would be to dismiss all other points or information that disagreed with your current thinking on that topic
Everyone has confirmation bias, everyone likes to see or hear things that confirm their view on a topic, and resist anything contrary to that, its the degree with which you resist a change that matters

Kind of like right now. I disagree with your statement that "Everyone has confirmation bias..."

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
Have you confirmed this?
I can without a doubt, 100% confirm that there is a chance of this, possibly being accurate.

Adequate doses of vitamin D and Zinc are said to prevent contracting it and to lesson symptoms if you do contract it. Surgical masks are useless. The tests aren’t accurate at all. And the vaccines, based on what I’m hearing, are dangerous and might not do anything for us.

My coworker knows someone at Phizer who’s been working on one of the vaccines. He asked him if he’d take it, being that he has first hand knowledge in it. He said, “Hell no!”

Also, I had a weird flu-like virus last February. It might’ve been this virus. I’m not sure. Out of nowhere I threw up. Then felt dizzy for about a week. And lost some of my taste and smell. I got over it. But, I do take vitamins D and Zinc (and C) somewhat regularly. Especially in the winter season.

That's not how gaslighting works, but better luck next time?

Guy, you tried to imply that my comment was ridiculous. That is how gaslighting works. Save me your petty remarks. I’m not buying what you’re selling.
