In this annotated version of my TEDx talk I consider why we often seem to ignore facts whilst being perfectly happy to believe nonsense? We can learn from our opponents and I present a few lessons from both sides that I hope will help people change...oh and there's a little tribute to Spock who sadly died just before our event took place
