Uncertainty is the new propaganda. I used to know a guy who arrived at "Maybe the Holocaust was a lie" from trying to take a fair and balanced approach to everything -- meaning he could never look at obvious bullshit and propaganda and discount it as such. Even after I sat him down and walked him through a very long, heavily cited collection of biologists, sociologists, and geneticists debunking "race realism" (at his request, he told me he wanted to have his views challenged so he could improve himself), he couldn't get past the question, "how do you truly KNOW all these people are right?" And the thing is, you can't. At some point, you have to accept that there are experts who know more than you because they spent a decade of their life studying it while you spent a decade becoming an expert in some other field. And if you're skeptical enough to question an entire body of science and demand that "alternative views must be considered", yet also not willing to accept when those alternative views are thoroughly debunked… well, that's the effect of the uncertainty propaganda.
It's so mind-fucking weird how skepticism became the new gullibility.
