Andy Schmookler wants you to question authority - just not the authority he believes.
His most recent column talks about the Scopes Trial - why did the people believe the authority of the Bible in their law against teaching of evolution.
Then he wonders why today, people don't blindly follow his climate change authorities.
It's because we've looked at evidence and question their authority.
If you don't realize there is information that disapproves the man-made climate change, or think it's just from an authority he doesn't trust, then you don't understand the other side.
You've fallen for a false authority and think you examined the evidence.
