Researchers have long associated incorrect beliefs about science with a lack of scientific literacy. Recent work has revealed that some individuals may know the scientific consensus but nonetheless reject it. Thus far, it remains unclear whether individuals who know and reject science do so out of a limited understanding of science or because they are motivated by alternative beliefs. This work leverages new scientific knowledge questions toward answering this question. I look in particular at the willingness to disagree with most scientists and its correlates.
