Scientific American just ran an article with a headline that reads, “Do People Really Think Earth Might Be Flat?” And the subhead reads, “a poll says lots of millennials evidently do…and it’s not entirely clear why.” So, the piece is supposedly all about how lots of millennials are flat-earthers, or, in other words, how young people are becoming dumber. And because of that sensational lead, lots of people were tweeting links to the story, and lots of people now believe that humans are becoming more stupid. But the entire article actually debunks that headline, and thus completes the real cycle of dumb. The Resident breaks it down.
