Piglet, it's because most people are subjected to systematic indoctrination, from a very early age, into cultures that promote ignorance and punish learning. Just look at the rapid decline of the US public education system since the 1940s, which has lead the US in a downward spiral of poor decisions and increasing income disparity.


Here's a "hmmm" moment for you:
#1 The overwhelming majority of people make the claim that the overwhelming majority of other people are all idiots.
#2 Statistically, almost all of the people who believe #1 are idiots.
#3 A characteristic of idiots is being convinced that they are the exception to a rule or statistic. For example: they might think that they have a higher chance of winning the lottery than other people.

SO: if you believe that most other people are idiots, how can you prove yourself to not also be an idiot when that's statistically improbable?
AND: even if you don't believe that most other people are idiots, how can you prove that you haven't simply convinced yourself that you're not an idiot?

If we could create perfect AI one day, who's to say we're not all AI in a program?

Personally, when I think about deep subjects, like life, death, and especially fate, and then try to get into concepts that humans aren't even capable of understanding (and why we cannot understand them).

That's what makes me go "hmmmm"
