Recently I read somewhere that saying something is unbelievable donates a lack of imagination on our part!
But some things are so outrageous that we simply cannot believe that it is actually happening. Take, for instance, the erroneous belief of some people that;
a) Covid is a hoax
b) Vaccination against Covid are dangerous and can kill people
c) They don’t need to take precautions against Covid, like wearing a mask, keeping their distance, or getting vaccinated
If these were poor, uneducated people of a third-world country, like mine, this can be put down to ignorance. But poor people of my country are getting vaccinated, (mostly) wearing masks, and are following government guidelines to stay safe.
It’s the privileged people of developed countries ( some, not all) who in their arrogance and not ignorance are taking this stance. If I say that it is unbelievable that people can be so stupid to reject reality in favor of unplausible theories, I wouldn’t be off the mark!
