“Scientists have discovered a powerful new strain of fact-resistant humans who are threatening the ability of Earth to sustain life, a sobering new study reports. The research, conducted by the University of Minnesota, identifies a virulent strain of humans who are virtually immune to any form of verifiable knowledge, leaving scientists at a loss as to how to combat them. ‘These humans appear to have all the faculties necessary to receive and process information,’ Davis Logsdon, one of the scientists who contributed to the study, said. ‘And yet, somehow, they have developed defenses that, for all intents and purposes, have rendered those faculties totally inactive.’ More worryingly, Logsdon said, ‘As facts have multiplied, their defenses against those facts have only grown more powerful.'”
