Yeah, I'd be upset too.
I'm sure YOU would be upset.
However the vast majority of scientists use what they have been taught as a basis for learning more.
Not as a be-all and end-all.
Learning doesn't just finish when you've completed your university education.
Science continually changes, that's what's great about it.
Other things remain rooted in historical hearsay and that's not healthy.
