We all now have a voice thanks to social media. We also need to be extra cautious while consuming content because everyone has an opinion on everything.
There is probably no better example of this than the “Facebook Science” subreddit. Its 50K users regularly demonstrate that there are no boundaries to human foolishness by compiling the most idiotic statements they can discover online.
The operators of the subreddit state on its ‘About’ page that “[this online community is] about the science-denying pseudo-intellectuals who think they know more than millennia of scientific understanding and aren’t scared to leave comments arguing even the most elementary of concepts.”
