Whatcha talking about, Jimmy? I just went outside, stood in a big field, and looked all around, and my brain tells me the earth is flat as a pancake. You gonna tell me that ain't right?

On more than one subjective-audio thread, I've brought up optical illusions as examples of how easily our perceptions can be tricked. I've even provided links to *auditory* illusions (such as this: Can You Trust Your Ears? (Audio Illusions) - YouTube ).

I don't think I ever changed anyone's opinions, though. People seem to believe what they want to believe. "Never let any inconvenient facts get in the way of your beliefs", as a friend of mine used to say.

Those (bold texts) are the crux of the matter in discussion. Some people just stop there and form their conclusion. Would be better if they take another step to evaluate those for accuracy.
