Ep. 706 - Know the least but think they know the most...
« on: January 22, 2019, 05:18:56 PM »
Talks about studies like this aren't my usual cup of tea, but I enjoyed the discussion on objective knowledge vs. the self-perception of knowledge in people strongly opposed to specific sciences.  This is something I've first-hand observed many times with family, while correcting the misinformation pushed on them from religious peers about what evolutionary theory actually states when compared to the "everyone came from monkeys" version they think they know.

Keep up the great work.  Until now, I thought Dunning-Kruger was when people thought they knew a lot about a subject, but still got killed in their dreams.

I think that's the Brian-Freddie effect.
and Donald Trump is President of the United States.

I'm not a doctor, I'm just someone who has done a ton of research into diet and nutrition.
