What's more dangerous? Disbelieving something without "proof" or believing something just because someone says so?

This sounds like the "fallacy of popular appeal", doesn't it? Just because multiple people believe something doesn't make that something "right". That simply isn't proof of anything.

Is it okay to be a sheep? Or is it okay to be blind? Or is there a middle ground in there somewhere?
