Every human being is capable of thinking, but some say that few are able to practice critical thinking. Thinking is the mental process, the act and the ability to produce thoughts.

This blatant hypocrisy causes confusion and fuels the public's skepticism of science more broadly. In recent months, the mainstream press has been on a crusade against COVID vaccine skepticism, tenaciously promoting science-based medicine and expressing little tolerance for anybody who holds a contrarian opinion.
