Thomas Lowry, PhD, is extremely dissapointed after realizing all the money and time he spent on graduate school was wasted.
“All that time I spent researching my doctoral thesis, late nights, writing, re-writing, then defending my dissertation, all that hard work was for nothing,” explains Dr. Lowry. “It turns out, people who watch YouTube videos and read Facebook memes know more than I do.”
This is not a new phenomenon, but it has become more apparent as the Coronavirus pandemic continues.
“You can learn everything (and probably more) than any medical doctor, PhD, whatever, with just some basic research skills,” says Trevor Smith, 33. “I guarantee you I know more about medicine and science than any of these so-called experts.”
Smith says he spends 3-4 hours a day researching on Google, Facebook and YouTube alone.
“I’m a free thinker, not some sheep who was programmed by Big Pharma universities,” says Smith.
Dr. Lowry is debating leaving his field to pursue other options:
“It seems like I can just make some shitty website and sell miracle cures to idiots and make a ton of money.”
