We are two concerned citizens. Concerned about the erosion of reasonable thought in modern society; concerned about the willingness of people to be goaded into illogical thoughts with the least bit of evidence; and concerned that the scientific process is not understood enough to value its enormous benefit.
Although we’re not scientists, we have observed the scientific process in action. It is humanity’s most successful endeavor, the one that took us from subsistence living to being space-faring people with ready drinking water, food supplies and much more.
We’re concerned about how gullible many people become when peer pressure succeeds in usurping their own reasoning process.
Social pressure is a powerful force, one that can herd susceptible people off the edge of reason. A great example is what Jim Jones did after eventually persuading several hundred followers to commit suicide by drinking tainted cool-aid. What a travesty.
