A new study coming out in the journal Public Understandings of Science finds that many people believe that university and industry scientists are the authority to trust about sciency things (risks and benefits of technology and its applications).
However, among evangelicals, the pattern is very different. Rather they see religious organizations as the authority on science.
Which could play into the “fact free” society we are living in.
I don’t know how to change this conundrum. I don’t know how to make it clear that facts are facts. I’m open to suggestions.
