TRANSCRIPT

What if we’re all wrong? Humans seem
programmed to believe that commonly held beliefs are actually facts,
especially when it comes to science and religion. Yet history tells us
that sometimes the masses change their minds and what we believe to be
the truth shifts.

We no longer believe the world to be flat. A
far smaller proportion of the population worships specific deities like
Sun Gods than was the case two thousand years ago. Almost nobody thinks
the Earth is at the center of the universe.

So what if water
isn’t the building block of all life, contrary to the current hunt on
Mars? Could the cult-like religious leaders known for things like
purple sweatsuits and spacecrafts be right? Maybe you really can go
back in time, or perhaps death is not inevitable.  What if the UFO
spotters aren’t nuts after all?

What if we’re all wrong?

I’m Chip Griffin — I believe.
