Truth, Trust, and Fact

This is an old topic revisited. I have blogged (or through Facebook Notes – those were the days!) some dinosaur years ago about how we instinctively choose so-called “scientific” claims over the words of people who have spent years investing time, emotions, and love in us. Mothers Who Used to Know-It-All The pivotal character in my previous post was about…
