    Must a non-scientist believe that all scientific theories currently accepted by the majority of scientists are true?

    Does lacking the belief in any scientific theory currently accepted by the majority of scientists make a person anti-science?

    Yes, but I want to know how individuals knowledgeable about psychology would answer the questions. Why are you following me around?

    He is not following you around. People post in more than one subforum you know. :wink: While I understand your intention, posting the same question in different subforums to get other people's perspectives won't work. If you want more people's perspectives I suggest posting in General Discussion or the sub you think would best suit your needs. You can ask the moderator of the relevant sub to move your thread (via PM preferably) if you think you made a mistake and he/she might consider it. I am closing this thread for now.
    Disclaimer: I do not declare myself to be an expert on ANY subject. If I state something as fact that is obviously wrong, please don't hesitate to correct me. I welcome such corrections in an attempt to be as truthful and accurate as possible.
