Mass Knowledge and The Conspiracy To Confuse

I have been thinking for many years now that since there is so much information out there, most of the time conflicting knowledge, it is no wonder that so many are confused. I too am guilty of this.

I have a question. Is there a concerted effort to keep the masses perpetally confused as to what is true and what is false? You have this one scientist/group which says "Blah, blah, blah." is true, then you have another scientist/group which says, "blah blah, blah," is true. Which one do you believe? If you choose one to believe, do you ever really know if you have chosen the correct one?

Of course, all of this filters into all areas of life. It doesn't matter if it is religion, politics, science or whatever else you can imagine. There is always information that states something is onme way and another piece of information that states that it is diametrically different, or at least different enough to cause conflict.
