Like considering two commonly used sayings “opposites attract” and “birds of a feather flock together”, the latter saying is totally in contradiction to the former as it implies that only similar ones attract. On the other hand, scientific belief is based on critical thinking, reasoning and employing scientific inquiry to discover the real fact without simply relying on hearsay and testimonials which only have the distinction that they have withstood many generations without any scientific support or research. Thus a scientific way of approach will help to develop a concrete understanding of a given situation and will hence enhance the development of human behavior as a whole. Thinking only in terms of the principles of common sense will only make the human mind stagnant and will not give it the chance to explore the different inherent possibilities for the occurrence of a situation.
Analyzing the concept of critical thinking in her article, Douglas (2000) does not question people’s belief but stresses that reasoning, reflective thinking and a correct assessment of the belief is required. The article has listed the gullible nature of humans and their stubbornness to accept changes as two of the most common enemies for critical thinking. Thus while people have a tendency to believe, they do not, however, believe in everything that is told to them as they have a tendency to resist changes in the previously held belief and this phenomenon is referred to by Douglas (2000) as belief perseverance. From the viewpoint of a Mental health counselor, a study conducted by Kardash and Scholes showed that people who already had their own beliefs about AIDS did not differ much from their previous beliefs even after they were made to read about the transmission from a newspaper. A similar case was observed by Anderson who made college students to study a text and later told them that the information was fabricated. . .
