I am not sure I can take it anymore. The Internet has distorted the line between what is true and what is not true so much, I am left knowing nothing. Just google 9/11 and you will find nobody knows what happened on that date. Or try to find out it Obama's a citizen and you will find that nobody knows! Next thing you will tell me is that Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman and Beowulf is the Yeti. What is the point of learning anything anymore, when there is no truth?
I think the hammer in the coffin for me was the revelation that the video of a baby being snatched away by an eagle was fake. I wept. Why would someone make such a great fake video? Why did it have to be fake? Never in my life did I want a baby to abducted by a massive raptor as much as I did today, except for maybe once back in 1983.
I think the Internet all agrees that it is a real shame that the baby was not stolen by the bird. But it begs the question: Is what I am actually looking at real? When I look out my window is that actually there? Nobody can tell me for sure! Maybe I am not even who I think I am. I will tell you this, whatever epistemological certainty I had this morning vanished, when I learned that baby wasn't eaten by an eagle. Parents, look into yourself. Look at your family. Are they really there? Is any of this real?
