Trust the Experts

Trust the experts or you should become one.

Experts can be wrong, but trusting the consensus opinion of the experts is the best path to the truth. You simply have no better source of evidence.

If expertise does not matter, then let a truck driver do your next operation. Or let a plumber do your dental work. Or have a stocker from the grocery store fix your car.

Just because experts can be wrong doesn’t mean the non-experts are going to have a better opinion. They won’t.

When the experts reach a consensus, trust that consensus unless other verifiable evidence contradicts it.
