People with extreme anti-science views know the least, but think they know the most: study

People often suffer from an ‘illusion of knowledge,’ write the authors of a new study that finds that people who hold the most extreme views about genetically modified foods know the least

Recently, researchers asked more than 2,000 American and European adults their thoughts about genetically modified foods.

They also asked them how much they thought they understood about GM foods, and a series of 15 true-false questions to test how much they actually knew about genetics and science in general.

The researchers were interested in studying a perverse human phenomenon: People tend to be lousy judges of how much they know.

Across four studies conducted in three countries — the U.S., France and Germany — the researchers found that extreme opponents of genetically modified foods “display a lack of insight into how much they know.” They know the least, but think they know the most.

“The less people know,” the authors conclude, “the more opposed they are to the scientific consensus.”

“Science communicators have made concerted efforts to educate the public with an eye to bringing their attitudes in line with the experts,”they write in the journal Nature Human Behaviour.

But people with an inflated sense of what they actually know — and most in need of education — are also the ones least likely to be open to new information.

“This suggests that a pre-requisite to changing people’s views through education may be getting them to first appreciate the gaps in their knowledge,” the authors write.

The problem is similar to the Dunning-Kruger effect: The less competent a person is at something, the smarter they think they are.

“Not only do these people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices,” David Dunning and Justin Kruger wrote in their 1999 paper describing the phenomenon, “but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it.”

Or, as English actor and comedian John Cleese once said: “If you’re very, very stupid, how can you possibly realize that you’re very, very stupid? You’d have to be relatively intelligent to realize how stupid you are.”

Extreme views often come along with not appreciating the complexity of the subject — “not realizing how much there is to know,” said Philip Fernbach, lead author of the new study and a professor of marketing at the University of Colorado Boulder. “People who don’t know very much think they know a lot, and that is the basis for their extreme views.”

His team’s findings held across education levels, and for people on both sides of the political aisle.

Genetically modified foods are a nonpartisan issue, Fernbach said. “People on the right and the left both kind of hate GMO’s,” even though the majority of scientists consider them to be as safe for human consumption as conventionally grown ones.

“Genetic engineering is one of the most important technologies that is really changing the world in a dramatic way and has the potential to have tremendous benefits for human beings” Fernbach said. “And yet there is very strong opposition.”

In one of their studies, 91 per cent of 1,000 American adults surveyed reported some level of opposition to GM foods.

The more extreme the opposition, Fernbach and his co-authors found, the less people knew about the science and genetics, but the more their “self-assessed” knowledge — how much they thought they knew — increased.

“If somebody is well calibrated, those two things should be pretty highly correlated: If I know how much I know, then if I know a little I should say I know a little, and if I know a lot I should say I know a lot,” Fernbach explained. “Therefore there should be a high correlation between self-assessed and objective knowledge.

“And indeed, that’s actually true for the people who are moderate, or people who have the attitude that is consistent with the scientific consensus,” he said.

However, as people become more extreme, that relationship degrades and flips so that people who think they know more actually know less.

“Extremists have this characteristic of being much worse than the other people at evaluating how much they know,” Fernbach said.

The authors, who included collaborators from the University of Toronto, also explored other issues like gene therapy to correct genetic disorders, and human-caused climate change denial. They found the same effects for gene therapy, but not for climate change denial. Fernbach hypothesizes that climate change has become so politically polarized that people subscribe to whatever their ideological group says, regardless of how much they think they know.

Humans often suffer from an “illusion of knowledge,” the authors write, “thinking they understand everything from common household objects to complex social policies better than they do.”

“So, the obvious thing we should try to do is educate people,” Fernbach said. “But that generally hasn’t been very effective.”

Sometimes it backfires, and people double down on their “counter-scientific consensus attitudes,” Fernbach said. “Especially when people feel threatened or if they are being treated as if they are stupid.”

He and his colleagues plan to look at how their findings play into other issues, like vaccinations and homeopathy, “to see how prevalent this miscalabration effect is.”

New Russian List of EMF Hazard and Prohibition Signs for Wireless Users and General Public

Look like Russia is putting people’s health above technology after Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection are calling for the release of new EMF hazard warning signs for wireless users of mobile phones and other EMF sources.

The article from Radiation Research say that”

The Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection are calling for the release of new EMF hazard warning signs for wireless users of mobile phones and other EMF sources, following the release of a published paper by Professor Oleg Grigoriev and ex-deputy minister of communication, Dr Prof Yuri Zubarev. The paper was published in September, 2019 in the oldest Russian journal of communication industry.

The EM Radiation Research Trust would like to thank Professor Oleg Grigoriev for providing this important information and call on Government officials to follow this example. The public should be alerted and hazard warning signs should be made mandatory for the safety of users to allow the public to make informed decisions.

Professor Oleg Grigoriev is the Chairman for the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection,
Dr.Sc. (radiobiology), Ph.D. (radiobiology & hygiene of non-ionazing radiation)
Laureate of Prize of the Russian Federation Government (for science and technology)
Chairman, Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection
Member, Scientific Consul for Radiobiology of Russian Academy of Science
Member, IAC of the WHO EMF project

The world needs to take note and follow this example. See attached paper and warning signs.

Elon Musk Is Making Implants to Link the Brain With a Smartphone

BY CNN WIRE

Elon Musk wants to insert Bluetooth-enabled implants into your brain, claiming the devices could enable telepathy and repair motor function in people with injuries.

Speaking on Tuesday, the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX said his Neuralink devices will consist of a tiny chip connected to 1,000 wires measuring one-tenth the width of a human hair.

The chip features a USB-C port, the same adapter used by Apple’s Macbooks, and connects via Bluebooth to a small computer worn over the ear and to a smartphone, Musk said.

“If you’re going to stick something in a brain, you want it not to be large,” Musk said, playing up the device’s diminutive size.

Neuralink, a startup founded by Musk, says the devices can be used by those seeking a memory boost or by stroke victims, cancer patients, quadriplegics or others with congenital defects.

The company says up to 10 units can be placed in a patient’s brain. The chips will connect to an iPhone app that the user can control.

The devices will be installed by a robot built by the startup. Musk said the robot, when operated by a surgeon, will drill 2 millimeter holes in a person’s skull. The chip part of the device will plug the hole in the patient’s skull.

“The interface to the chip is wireless, so you have no wires poking out of your head. That’s very important,” Musk added.

Trials could start before the end of2020, Musk said, likening the procedure to Lasik eye correction surgery, which requires local anesthetic.

Musk has said this latest project is an attempt to use artificial intelligence (AI) to have a positive effect on humanity. He has previously tried to draw attention to AI’s potential to harm humans.

He has invested some $100 million in San Francisco-based Neuralink, according to the New York Times.

Musk’s plan to develop human computer implants comes on the heels of similar efforts by Google and Facebook. But critics aren’t so sure customers should trust tech companies with data ported directly from the brain.

“The idea of entrusting big enterprise with our brain data should create a certain level discomfort for society,” said Daniel Newman, principal analyst at Futurum Research and co-author of the book Human/Machine.

“There is no evidence that we should trust or be comfortable with moving in this direction,” he added.

While the technology could help those with some type of brain injury or trauma, “Gathering data from raw brain activity could put people in great risk, and could be used to influence, manipulate and exploit them,” Frederike Kaltheuner of Privacy International told CNN Business. “Who has access to this data? Is this data shared with third parties? People need to be in full control over their data.”

The tech industry is coming under heightened scrutiny over how it handles data.

France fined Google parent company Alphabet in January for violating EU online privacy rules. Facebook reportedly faces a major fine in the United States over its own data privacy violations.

Tesla has also suffered data leaks. In 2018, researchers at security firm RedLock said Tesla’s cloud storage was breached to mine cryptocurrency.

Radiation And It’s Effects on Plants: Magnetic Reversals – Grand Solar Minimums – Cosmic Rays

Before I explain how radiation can affect plant-life, I must first explain what exactly radiation is, and how it is able to affect matter. Radiation comes from many places, from the Sun, to things man makes like cell phones and TV’s. Radiation is not always dangerous. Radiation can become very dangerous depending on what kind of radiation it is, and how long something is exposed to it. Radiation has two types, non-ionizing, which is mostly harmless, and ionizing. This high-energy, ionizing radiation can lead to serious problems within an organism. Radiation energy is transferred by particles or waves . While non-ionizing radiation is relatively low-energy, ionizing radiation is so high in energy it can break chemical bonds. This means it can change the charge of an atom that interacts with it. At high levels, this can even damage and destroy the nucleus of an atom, directly affecting an organism’s DNA. Once DNA is tampered with, an organism can develop dangerous mutations. http://large.stanford.edu/courses/201… Tomatoes And Gamma Rays https://images.fineartamerica.com/ima… Peas Exposed To WiFi https://www.magdahavas.com/wp-content… Could Astronaut Crops Survive Space Radiation? https://www.space.com/11142-chernobyl… Effects of sparsely and densely ionizing radiation on plants https://www.researchgate.net/publicat… Cosmic ionizing radiation effects in plant seeds after short and long duration exposure flights https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1… The Good Stuff Is Below!
