‘The easiest way to deal with things you don’t understand is to not believe them’

THE easiest way of dealing with things that you do not understand, like climate change or macroeconomics, is simply not to believe they are real.

Studies have found that everything from evolution to mental illness to global warming can be successfully dealt with, in the short-term, by simply stating they do not exist.

Joe Turner of Southport said: “Economic depression because of Brexit? Nonsense. See?

“I’ve got a million of ‘em mate. Global warming? With that Beast from the East we got the other year? No such thing.

“I don’t believe in the moon landings either, because come on, it’s bollocks. And no way is the sun 93 million miles away. Or you’d never feel it was hot.

“And the great thing is that once things aren’t real you don’t have to worry about them. You can dismiss them forever and leave that mental space for something else, like chemtrails.”

Daughter Sam Turner said: “Yeah, the problem is Dad doesn’t really understand much. Yesterday he told me wifi was ‘all in my head’.”
