Remember the movie 2012 that depicted the second coming of Noah’s flood, with earth splitting fires that swallowed all civilizations?
December 21 came and passed. What were you doing?
How many times you learned that a disaster could have been averted had someone paid a bit more attention? How frequent do you ignore those warnings? Had we heeded the doomsday prediction, we would look like fools. Yet we chastened those who should have paid attention to the warnings of 9/11, Sandy Hook, or even earthquakes. We assess the quality of the decisions by the outcome that are dominated by uncontrollable factors.
Rationality is not human.
