Food for Thought

I did not think the other review was very nice. This is interesting that education tends to lead people to liberal views. As a college student, I think that it is due to the fact that general education curricula requires that students learn about their social surroundings which in turn makes them more aware of the general inequalities that some people face on a regular basis.

A bit of snobbery?

A piece of paper may often signify conditioning as well as, or even more often than, critical thinking and examination of evidence. A number of neo-physicists blindly believe LIGO gravity waves simply because Einstein's name got attached to the work while ignoring Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which makes such measurements highly unlikely. Billions in tax money misspent on a folly?
