Is provisionally pre-judging while keeping an open mind the best humanity can hope for?

Do you sometimes feel we are not evolutionarily designed to keep an open mind?

If another earth-like planet were found and it took only 5 years to reach it, would you be willing to go there and be among the first settlers?
