Not only is it ridiculous but i can imagine many cases in which It’s even dangerous. Surely many disasters could have been avoided if people knew what they were doing, one example being the Fukushima disaster.

“We’ve arranged a global civilization in which most crucial elements profoundly depend on science and technology. We have also arranged things so that almost no one understands science and technology. This is a prescription for disaster. We might get away with it for a while, but sooner or later this combustible mixture of ignorance and power is going to blow up in our faces.”

― Carl Sagan, The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark
