i dream of being possible

im far from sciences most ardent worshipper far

i’m far from science’s most ardent worshipper (far from it)

but there are few things i fucking loathe more than bullshit pseudo science and folk science like

‘msg is bad’ ‘vaccines cause autism’ ‘fat is unhealthy’ etc etc

because these ideas are so fucking dangerous and harm so many people

(not that science hasn’t done its fair share of harm…)

this is also why we need to remain critical of science too.

but something about folk/pseudo science makes me rage
