->"I agree: Pauline and her supporters should do their own research. If, by 'research', they mean 'carry out large scale observational studies and get them published in peer-reviewed academic journals'. By all means, replicate the study of all children born in Denmark between 1991 and 1998 that found no association between autism and and the MMR vaccine. But if by 'research' you mean 'have a bit of a Google and cherrypick what confirms your biases', that is the ''opposite'' of science. And while you're cherrypicking on the Internet, remember that science brought you the Internet. ''And the cherrypicker!''"

->''"We read a news article that supports what we believe, and we add it to the 'I'm right about this' column. News articles that contradict what we believe are dismissed. [[InsaneTrollLogic We make up a reason -- maybe the source is part of the conspiracy from the other side or whatever it takes]] to make sure the 'I'm wrong about this' column remains empty.\\

"Researchers have done experiments where they hooked up people's brains to scanners and then made them read a story pointing out something stupid their favorite candidate said. The logical parts of the brain stayed quiet, while the emotional parts of the brain lit up. Their brains were weighing the story, not based on what it logically meant for their position, but on the emotional/social consequences of that position being wrong.\\
\\
"''Then'', once the brain had decided that this news story being right would mean pain and humiliation for the reader, it told the logical part, 'Figure out a way to use your "logic" stuff to make this pain go away.' The next day, you probably heard those test subjects at the coffee shop going on and on about how biased the press is against their guy."''
