Conspiracy theorists lack critical thinking skills: New study
I guess when you lack some real, valid arguments for your case, resorting to dumb-shaming or other fallacies of relevance that are elaboratedly clad into a sciency sounding article, is the best you can come up with:
The more people believe in conspiracy theories, the worse they perform on critical thinking tests, a new study has confirmed.
This doesn’t mean that conspiracy theorists are necessarily lacking intelligence, but rather that they lack the skills to objectively analyse and evaluate a situation.
The good news is that people can be taught these skills, and to an extent be brought in from the dark side – but of course it’s complicated.
For example, there’s a persistent conspiracy theory that shady figures in the US government were complicit in events of 9/11 – where airliners were flown into the World Trade Centre towers, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania – and the attacks weren’t simply the work of Islamic terrorists.
Well, that blaming shady figures in the Islamic world for having people fly into the WTC and even managing to destroy building 7 without having a plane flying into it, is as my critical thinking skills tell me, a conspiracy theory, too.
Linking this to the scamdemic is of course unintentionally comical, too. You got no evidence of virus, no evidence that the proposed virus causes disease, but still you insist that there is some new virus making the rounds causing people to get sick... Your proof? "There are sick people and uncle doctor said, it's Covid"... Question begging any one... By affirming proposed consequences.
