    Best thing I have read in ages.

    I have been thinking about this exact phenomenon recently and came to a similar conclusion to Robert Proctor.. pity I am not a scientist that comes up with cool words. But yes, just look at 9/11 conspiracy, look at a certain member on SC and his inexhaustable knowledge about GW.

    No, the internet is doing us no good in this sense. Maybe their should be penalties for deliberately msinforming somone?

    So basically this guy is saying that humans are stupid and will believe anything, and will disregard any different view if they are overloaded with information.
