So, my area is Sports Sciences and for several month i was dealing with other difficult coach who just believe that every research is fake or something like this and I'm wasting a lot of time and energy trying to make his reason correctly about the issue... but it looks like he wants from an emotional point of view that things to be like this ...


Every evidence based in paper he say that he have no way to know if the information is true...


How to deal with him?

Ignore if possible.  His mind is made up.  Don't trouble him with facts.

Don't waste your time, if the person's mind is not receptive.


However, don't have "faith" in medical research papers. Each research result needs to be meticulously evaluated!! Most medical research is either bad science (poor set-up), not reproducible, or fraudulent.

Many people who don't "believe in science" are plain delusional and no matter what you say their brain will wire it up in a way to fit their agenda. It by definition impossible to convince a delusional person, because their opinion was never based on facts to begin with.
