"It is far easier to believe that which is placed in front of us by what we have been told are reputable sources than it is to even consider other possibilities." - Lady of Light
Instead of taking anyone's word for anything, it makes sense to consider all other possibilities no matter what the source. Just because the media says something, and scientists say something, and religious and world leaders say something, doesn't make what any of them say fact. Don't be stuck on what these "reputable" sources say. Sure, it's easier than thinking for one's self, but trust me, it's better to think for yourself than to just blindly follow.
I'm not sure if any of that came out the way I wanted it to, but I tried.
