It's difficult for me to be tolerant of people claiming they are able to recognize scientific authority on epidemiology, immunology, or climate change, when most don't even recognize high school physics in action, when they are explicitly challenged to consider something that is counter-intuitive.

Also, and more importantly, there is no scientific authority to begin with, for exactly this reason. Throughout history, whenever a scientific matter was treated as dogma, and not as "the best model we currently have while considering any and all new evidence and theories", it stagnated and crippled the search for truth.


@raucao it's most unfortunate 'the science' has become a meme.

Glad I'm not a scientist tbh, it would piss me right off.
