Description

I feel these days science and knowledge are discarded for stupidity or financial gains. Especially by politicians but also a lot by the people. (I mean… flat earth theory?? chem’ trails??) It’s like science and learning isn’t cool right now and I find that disheartening. We can’t take intelligent and just decisions without knowledge.
It’s ok not to know about something, but when you see you are lacking information in a debate, admit your lack of knowledge and seek it in order to have an informed opinion about the subject at hand. And seek if from reliable sources.

And there’s a big misconception of the notion of “belief” and “scientific theory”, there are not the same. A scientific theory is build on facts and observation, it basically is trying to explain the seen facts and observation. Theories are tested through experimentation.

A belief is Santa Claus. You don’t have to test it for it to be a belief, you just believe, no questions asked.
