I observe the sun rising and falling in the sky. Scientists and teachers tell me that the sun is actually NOT moving, but that it is in fact the Earth that is moving around the sun. They provide reams of evidence to back this up, but it is challenging material. Who should I believe?

I observe myself to be human like everyone else. Scientists and teachers tell me that I am a member of an inferior and inherently corrupt race, that I will therefore amount to no good, and that I deserve to be either enslaved or exterminated. They provide no satisfactory evidence, but they are supported by many powerful, admired, and respected people. Who should I believe?

It's not easy using your brain all the time, is it?
