'The New Yorker' Says The Earth Is Endangered By A "New Strain" Of Humans
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 5 months ago
Even if "The New Yorker" is the home of blandness and droll writing, they’ve written at least on moderately-amusing articles. They made a funny about “a study” on the proliferation of fact resistant humans that made me, and even Elon Musk, give our approval. In my own worthless opinion, humanity is no different than bacteria or a virus on a living host growing out of control. Any time bacteria or virus grow out of control, it’s called an infection. We are an infection and the "New Yorker" made it funny. Just not funny enough for me to categorize it in I-A-B as funny...
“While scientists have no clear understanding of the mechanisms that prevent the fact-resistant humans from absorbing data, they theorize that the strain may have developed the ability to intercept and discard information en route from the auditory nerve to the brain. 'The normal functions of human consciousness have been completely nullified,' Logsdon said.
While reaffirming the gloomy assessments of the study, Logsdon held out hope that the threat of fact-resistant humans could be mitigated in the future. 'Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen,' he said.”
