The anti-science movement along with black-lives-matter, LGBTQ community, Trans community and feminist are creating a really unicorn poo world. It is very dangerous.
If they succeed at governing the whole lot, They will create a world where statistics don't matter, Skills don't matter, Your experience don't matter. The only thing that matters is your feelings. This will pretty much destroy the structure of society for everyone but white cis males will be victims. Look I don't mind fair treatment and equality but I want science and facts to be there.
So. . . Pay gap is complete bull, Biological sexes is what you are and black lives can live their own life without bothering everyone around them. We need fact to govern this. . . Not damn fiction
If you don't like what I say meet me in the replies pls :)
Over the course of just a few hundred years, Scientific discoveries have saved billions of lives. With scientific advances in vaccination, Medications, Surgeries, And sanitation the average human lifespan has increased from around 35 years in 1700 (England) to 80. 96 years in 2016 (again in England for comparison. ) Unfortunately, We are so privalaged today that we do not have to deal with many of the debilitating illnesses of the past antiscience groups have emerged denying the usefulness of basic practices like vaccination, Bringing back deadly illnesses that were about to be on the verge of extinction.
As well as this many politicians have begun to ignore major issues such as climate change or the destruction of major species and environments.
We live in a time when we are so privileged, We fail to see the value of the very thing that allowed us this life.
The fewer people accept science, Which uses experimentation to test hypotheses, And changes as the evidence does and encourages people to ask questions. Since most opposition to science comes from religion, It would make sense to go with what science has to say, Since not all the data is in at all times. However in many cases such as the theory of evolution, There is so much evidence, A logical person would accept it as a fact. Besides a scientific theory is different from other theories, Since they are rigorously tested and are always open to critique, At this point most scientific theories have stood the tests of scientists, And falsehoods have been corrected when new data enters the playing field. Anti-vaccine parents are just putting others at risk, Not just their own children. Most people don't think ignorance via faith or other means will hurt them, But chances are it will.
This is very dangerous to the safety to humankind and the environment. For example take vaccines and proven medicine. If people part putting in doubts then we might fall into the hands of an infectious disease. People don't think it can happen to them, until it does. People think the effects of human ignorance won't have an effect on them, until it does.
Oh no, people are not accepting every theory that science produces as absolute fact. How dare they deny something as fact just because it's not proven.
Yes, there are many things that science has proven beyond a doubt and not accepting it poses some risk to those who disagree. Thing is, automatically accepting something as fact also has it's dangers both physically and emotionally. This is partly because science often does something just because they can and not because they should.
Fairly recently, people have claimed that Trump is part of this anti-science movement because he does not support the current climate change theory. Why should he? Look, back in the 70's people claimed Global Cooling was coming and we needed to stop it now. It competed with another theory of Global Warming that had the same warning to stop it. Fairly recently, the two sides have reached a compromise called climate change to justify their conflicting data. Thing is, just because Trump does not go all-in with the climate change theory, it does not mean that he is opposed to science. After all, he also wants to advance our space program so how can he be opposed to science?
In the end. Some science is proven and much of it is still theory. Are there people that deny some scientific facts? Sure. Look at the Flat Earth believers. Thing is, the vast majority of people look at them as nuts so there is no way they would have any significant effect on society. If anything, they are dangerous to themselves. Let them have their opinions.
