Sorry, but that's on her


At what point are individuals responsible for determining for themselves what's true and false?

There are countless sources of information out there. For example, Kyrie Irving let us know that the Earth is flat. This is someone with a massive number of fans...including 14 million Instagram followers.

Now, I could choose to accept Kyrie as a reliable source of information, or I could opt to validate somewhere with even stronger scientific credentials than a man who bounces balls for a living. Or better yet, I could rely on my own gray matter to tell me that ships aren't dropping off the edge of the world.

If your friend is like a concerning number of people who rely on life-impacting information from Facebook, you should make her aware of the existence of more reputable, fact-based sources.
