You wouldn’t dare to discuss partial differential equations with a mathematician — unless you hold a doctorate in that particular niche of math.
Few would question medical procedures performed by a brain surgeon, or propulsion technology with a rocket scientist, - unless you were an expert in the respective field. Even fewer would question a grand master’s move on the chess board, unless you were a ranked chess player yourself.
So, why would the most uneducated and science challenged among us have the audacity to deny the validity of vaccination, climate change, evolution, and other issues where science is firmly established?
And I’m not only talking about Republican members of Congress and the family von Trump residing in the White House.
