I can not wrap my head around the anti science feeling in the country right now. I never grew up with this feeling and I worry about the kids doing so now. Also why is it that even teenagers ( not just young people, adults do this also ) think they are more of an expert on subjects they get preached to about than the very people who have dedicated their lives to learning and researching these subjects. There seems to be a few topics that young people are taught to overlook the educational and training background of the scientist, and to then declare that their feelings on the matter are more important than the science. They are free to disregard any evidence that is contrary to their own personal feelings. I simply don’t get it. Hugs

I also think it is important to give respect for education and life time achievements, skills, and research done by a person. I simply don’t think my skills as an untrained builder are up to the same skill and standards of an educated engineer with degrees and experience in building. I can not claim as a former C.N.A.A. to have the same skill as a surgeon. Hugs
