Science in a post-fact culture

Night Talk: Why do some people believe the sun revolves around the earth, while others do not? Why do some people believe in the theory of evolution, while others reject it? Can people who believe the earth is flat be true scientist?

One could say they can, because what is science if it is not prepared to call into question existing knowledge and theories? Sociologist Professor Peter Achterberg will go into existing theories like the theory of evolution and discuss why some people believe in them and others do not.
