What does this quote mean? "Our desire to conform is greater than our respect for objective facts"? And you either defend, challenge, or neutral for the quote. Explain.

I believe that means that we would rather fit in with society even if what society believes is not true. It can be true in some cases, so I am neutral for the quote. Many people believe that there is a god even if there is no "definite" proof of a being so powerful, but some people would rather conform instead of agreeing with the objective facts. (That's one example). However, for some, they would rather be with the true-facts instead of society.

I am drawn to believe it means we are oblivious to out surroundings and don't know what is actually going on underneath it all. And that we are just a herd of sheep where all we are concerned about is being like one another.
