Anyone with normal color vision agrees that blood is roughly the same color as strawberries, cardinals and the planet Mars. That is, they're all red. But could it be that what you call "red" is someone else's "blue"? Could people's color wheels be rotated with respect to one another's?
"I would say recent experiments lead us down a road to the idea that we don't all see the same colors," Neitz said.
Another color vision scientist, Joseph Carroll of the Medical College of Wisconsin, took it one step further: "I think we can say for certain that people don't see the same colors," he told Life's Little Mysteries.
One person's red might be another person's blue and vice versa, the scientists said. You might really see blood as the color someone else calls blue, and the sky as someone else's red. But our individual perceptions don't affect the way the color of blood, or that of the sky, make us feel.
Some of yall probably will love this.
what do these findings say about a person ability to make a rational decision about the facts supporting the truthfulness or falsefullness of any given religion?
Ppl don't argue over which color is which but why when it comes to facts surrounding any given religion ppl can see the same facts and still draw all the way opposite conclusions?
