You Darn People! You Can't Ignore the Experts!

You Can't Sow Doubt About Experts!  Why We'll Show You!
Popular Science: Why We're Shutting Off Our Comments
A politically motivated, decades-long war on expertise has eroded the popular consensus on a wide variety of scientifically validated topics. Everything, from evolution to the origins of climate change, is mistakenly up for grabs again. Scientific certainty is just another thing for two people to "debate" on television. And because comments sections tend to be a grotesque reflection of the media culture surrounding them, the cynical work of undermining bedrock scientific doctrine is now being done beneath our own stories, within a website devoted to championing science.

That's right!  Because a scientific theory like Evolution Can Predict...okay that one doesn't matter!  After all, Climate Change is Settled!  Okay, okay that one's an anomoly.

Just remember The Experts Have Spoken!  so no comments from you little people!
