Do You Eat The Messenger?

It is both fascinating and infuriating to watch the research-informed messages coming from scientists around the globe as they try to educate citizens. Personally, I am learning a lot. It’s pretty cool to learn how tracking genetic mutations in the Coronavirus can be used to understand how it moves around the world. But I also know lots of people avoid science like the plague and prefer to feed the emissaries of science to archaic, irrational thought monsters. Why do they choose to do this? It’s infuriating and often selfish.
