Dated occupational statistics showed MDs as slightly more intelligent than average (IQ~107 IIRC) so it not their smarts. They are above average in obsessive-compulsive traits as well as memory ability. If one thinks about it (STS) the latter two are far more important to their certification and occupation than common smarts (IQ).

How do so many presumably normal people buy into these way out fantasies?  It's mass hysteria in action and some of us are more susceptible and fall for them.

There must be some connection in brains waiting to be activated by infectious memes such as conspiracies and religion, works somewhat like ducklings bonding to the first moving thing they sense.

To be filed under unintended consequences: 

As you may know, South Carolina recently passed a law letting death row inmates pick their method of demise, either electrocution or a firing squad. After many years they were finally ready to resume several pending executions via electrocution.

 Not so fast! At present the State has no firing squad, therefore convicts are unable to pick their preferred method as the law requires. Ergo, all execution are on hold until the State is able to provide a firing squad.
