I liked NavelGazing Midwife‘s post on this.
Denialism is spreading in our country. From the “birthers” who don’t believe Obama is an American citizen to the continued denial of the Holocaust, standing on the moon and that HIV doesn’t cause AIDS. Depending on where you stand, the other side looks foolish, if not downright stupid, to believe in such absurd ideas. Denialism isn’t just not believing something, but not believing in the face of scientific, hands-on, well-studied and multi-checked facts.
This begs the question, whose facts are to be believed?
Definitely food for thought.
