comment What is the bias/thought process that results in distrust of “formal” knowledge in favor of “folk” knowledge?
@baixiwei I'm not talking distrust of a single scientist, but rather large volumes of throughly proven data. It seems very strange to accept so many scientific things as simple fact (few doubt gravity, the weather, electricity) but certain other things are trumped by folk knowledge for some (vaccines, astrology, homeopathy)
