Conservative Scott Adams On How to “Predict The Future”

The world is not as it seems. That much should be obvious. It’s more or less universally accepted that the current scientific model of the universe will inevitably be determined to be grossly in error. This, we assume to be the case based on thousands of years of documented evidence that time and time again, people’s theories and perceptions are inevitably proven wrong.

Knowing this, you would think that folks would take on a few parcels of humility as they load themselves up with rote memorization of all the latest theories. We should know, to put it simply, that we are wrong about almost everything.

What is obvious, is that what we think we know — however wrong it probably is — is still the basis for a good groundwork for making predictions. If that were not the case, you would be reading this on a stone tablet instead of an LCD screen.

This should tell us that accurately modeling the world around us, may be desirable, but is not necessary to achieve predictable or desirable outcomes.

What’s more, it should be self-evident that every person has a different view of the world, yet all of us, for the most part, still achieve similar results. We grow up, stay alive long enough to start a family, die, and buy a lot of sandwiches in the intervening time.

So we might ask ourselves the question, how important is it to be right?

Here’s Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, with a unique perspective on our relationship to the truth.
