It's the scientific establishment versus the heretics!
It is the heretic that makes the fire,
Not she which burns in't.
-- William Shakespeare
A Winter's Tale
Worried about global warming?
Alarmed about nuclear power?
Fearful of not having enough sunblock because of the hole in the ozone layer?
Losing sleep over the possible extinction of the some rare species of slime?
Bothered by the human population bomb?
Concerned about the growing cat population?
Well fret not! Turns out that these well known TRUTHS may one day be relegated to the trash bin of history along with the flat Earth theory. (Then again, it turns out that Medieval scholars did not believe the Earth to be flat. They well knew that the Earth was spherical in shape and even had an accurate estimate of its size. Their opposition to Columbus' idea of sailing west to the Indies was based on that very fact--that the voyage would be so long there was no way Columbus and his crews could survive.)
And while we're on the subject of suspect science, let's not forget the Big Bang theory. Any theory that has to be constantly modified in the face of new evidence... Hmmm, maybe it's time to take a closer look at Darwin's theory of natural selection.
Three worthy quotes.
The great tragedy of science—the slaying of a beautiful hypothesis by an ugly fact. – Thomas Huxley
Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments. They wander off through equation after equation and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. - Nikola Tesla
I believe that a scientist looking at nonscientific problems is just as dumb as the next guy. – Richard Feynman
Turns out that many a scientist looking at scientific problems may be just as dumb as the next guy!
