Should we question math?

It’s not rare to find articles or posts (specially in r/badmathematics) about people “disproving” a theorem or sometimes a whole field of mathematics. I believe we should question pretty much everything, but defying mathematical facts seems just plain stupidity. At the same time, though, we are still fallible humans and math is our creation, so maybe there’s something none of us have ever seen. I usually question any results in math until I’ve seen a demonstration of them, but I can’t help but wonder if there’s a logical failure in it and none of us could see it. I’m not very sure where I’m trying to go with this, what do you think?
