Selective Illiteracy Syndrome is a serious mental/moral impairment which afflicts individuals who disagree with something but do not examine the presented evidence in support of what they differ with -not because they can’t read- they habitually choose to NOT honestly read out of an irrational paralysing fear that those they disagree with just might be right!

Usually employed by contrarians, internet atheists, trolls and the lazy.
C: You said you wanted proof for my position. Here is all the verifiable evidence that I could find.
