This is how a large percentage of people can rant “the Science is settled!!” and truly believe it. They are quite happy with a system where ideas are not challenged, merely accepted and repeated, with any dissent quickly squashed and punished... exactly like the Church heydays that they despise so much.
Sooooooo many “professors” are LIB lunatics with absolute leftist ideas. These nut-jobs are afraid they will be involuntarily committed.
