I'm not clear why they'd have to be ignorant of other people's positions.
It seems that they could be ignorant of the evidence that has swayed other
people or the methodology other people use in sifting through evidence. So,
with limited information and limited information using tools, they could be
quite aware of other people's conclusions while simply thinking that other
people are wrong.

Unless, by "position" you mean the evidence and methodology as well as the
actual conclusions. If that's the case, I agree with you.
