Is it possible to know the truth about something without challenging it and exploring it first?


I've noticed many people tend to blindly follow and believe things they are told are right - without ever really questioning these things. This can be everything from religious beliefs to medicines being safe that are full of negative side effects etc. People often trust doctors just because they are doctors - without verifying facts, checking their credentials, etc. Politics is another area where this is rampant - and why attack ads work so well. Do you think we are lazy when it comes to knowledge? Our desire for a simple answer or comfort often outweighs our common sense?
