Fundamentalism is fertile soil for gullibility and denial of scientific fact

 

Back in 2013, the Guardian reported that one in four Americans believed that Barack Obama might be the anti-Christ who was secreting plotting to rule the USA by Sharia Law….

More recently, Christian “COVID-19 denialists” have come out of the woodwork, like 66-year-old Christian “musical evangelist” Landon Spradlin, who claimed on social media that Coronavirus was nothing more than media-led mass hysteria designed to damage President Trump’s re-election chances. He died of COVID-19 a few days later. How very sad that Mr. Spradlin’s faith didn’t grant him access to his common sense.

Sadly, fundamentalism is fertile soil for gullibility and denial of scientific fact.

A joint effort of several authors who do find that nobody can keep standing at the side and that “Everyone" must care about what is going on in today’s world. We are a bunch of people who do not mind that somebody has a totally different idea but is willing to share the ideas with others and to be Active and willing to let others understand how "today’s decisions will influence the future”. Therefore we would love to see many others to "Act today".
