Is the old saying "seeing is believing" still relevant in the era of false information and the instruments of spreading it?


Greetings Steemians!

There is an old saying, "Seeing is believing." It means one need to see the things before believing about their existence.

In the era of technologies like photoshop, photo editing, deepfake and 24x7 media, we are living a life of illusion and falsehood. We cannot verify veracity of what the media says to us or what information we are getting through other mediums.

Nowadays almost anyone can make a talking dog video, and other shits, so you cannot always believe what you see.
