Scientific Denialism and the Big Bang theory ⟶

Great piece in The Conversation about Big Bang denial (nothing to do with the TV show)

Extraordinary claims about the supposed failings of the Big Bang theory weren’t being backed by extraordinary evidence.

It blows me away that in an age where our scientific knowledge of the world and the universe it sits in, intelligent people still deny established scientific theories such as climate change, evolution and vaccinations. They do this while mostly ignoring the scientific process of collecting data and publishing a paper for rigorous review by qualified peers.

Scientific fact should never be about personal preference, opinion or choice. It should be about what can observed, tested and repeated.
