Well, while it being true that any dumbass can scrape by and earn a degree without truly comprehending the subject. I would like to have some faith in formal education and believe someone who is taught heavily researched findings has more knowledge than a fit person spitting bro-science.
So it kind of goes both ways, but I think the gathering and discussing of different views (like on this forum) can really fish out the good information from the nonsense.
