GLP, In A Nutshell
A few days ago, this obviously photoshopped image of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Osama bin Laden resurfaced on social media.

You donít have to be a photoshop expert to see that the resolution from the two faces is obviously not from the same photo. Itís also pretty common knowledge that Osama bin Laden was about 6í6″ and would tower over Rice. He was also a devout Muslim and would have been prohibited by his religion from touching a woman who was not his wife. Then, thereís the minor fact that in the picture, Rice is missing a left arm.

That didnít stop blogs and people from posting the picture as fact, just because, to some, it felt like fact.

The truth about the photo? It won a photoshop contest for April Fools Day seven years ago.

None of that is surprising, at least according to a study released on Monday and performed by a collaboration of Italian and American researchers. The intent was to find out, in laymanís terms, whether the internet is dumbing down information and by extension, people.

The researchers focused on three conspiracies: chemtrails, reptilians and the Illuminati. The study used date from a mind-boggling 1.2 million individuals. The results, in a nutshell, was that people use information to confirm and strengthen their beliefs, no matter how ridiculous, and they ignore the information that contradicts them. I can guarantee you that someone, somewhere will be insisting on the legitimacy of the Rice/bin Laden picture, even after reading this article.

No, I bet if you compared any other group the findings would be the same. Religious people, atheists, evolutionists, radicals, greens etc.... This just proves human bias.

The pic does somehow do the job of reminding me how much Osama looked like Obama, however.

Bogus Photo?

It's far more believable than the 9-11 "Official Story"?
