Frank Klus (ftklus) This terrible tragedy with the four children is just a symptom of a greater problem going on. People are swallowing the misinformation they get from right wing sites that promote this nonsense.

Alicja (darkwingduckie7) | 228 comments This is happening because people just don't know how to evaluate good science from bad science (or good vs. bad scientific claims). There are so many websites written on the internet by people who claim that they know while it is complete bs that it is hard to distinguish between the valid information and the outdated info or complete lies. The only solution is better science education that includes critical thinking and evaluation of scientific premises and evaluation of sources providing scientific claims.
