Science and history is constantly changing but a lot of people do not like change, change bad.
Just recently they found out that life can exist and form in conditions once thought to be impossible if devolve of either one of the necessary
elements that are essential for life to exist.
Life where life cannot exist
Back in the early days of the United States, explorers found countless mounds throughout America. It was believed that a higher form of civilization
built them and that the Native Americans were not capable of building such structures. It was "proven" that the Natives did not build them and those
few who said otherwise were "debunked" and their credibility destroyed. Hmm
A few years ago a marine biologist spoke at a conference and told all the "distinguished" guests that there existed out in the depths of the ocean a
colossal squids and possibly even larger ones. He was laughed out of the conference and ridiculed by "professionals" of his field who said no such
thing could ever exist. A year later a fishing boat captured one. Hmm
In the 19th century, Frank Calvert and Heinrich Schliemann told the historical societies and the world that Troy could be real. They were laughed at
by "professionals" who told him it was merely a story and that he was a fool. And it was "proven" to be just a legend and nothing more. In 1873, Troy
was discovered and was found to be real and not just a myth or story. Hmm
The thought of being able to fly in the air was once "proven" to be a fanciful idea that could never be possible, until the Wright Brothers decided to
go against "proven science" and successfully took flight in 1903. Hmm
Going to the moon was another one of the "fanciful ideas" that was "proven" impossible by leading professionals until the technology was developed
that proved otherwise. Hmm
In the 19th century, Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis published a book on his findings that washing hands would reduce morality to below 1%. His findings and
ideas were "debunked" and rejected by the medical community and "professionals" were outraged that he would suggest such a thing as possible. His
findings were not acceptable and he was then committed to an asylum where he was beaten severely by the guards and died 14 days later. His "debunked"
findings were finally "proven" correct years after his death. Hmm
In 1628, William Harvey wrote a book on his theory of how the heart was the was the central pump for blood circulation. He received much criticism and
was ostracized from the scientific community because his beliefs were against the norm and "proven" science. Hmm
Georg Ohm in 1827, published a book in which he presented his theory of electricity. His work was rejected by the scientific community and he was
forced to resign from his position at his college. Ohm's Law, named after him is now a "proven" science. Hmm
As you can see, "professionals" have constantly "proven" others wrong (those who think outside the box) and have "debunked" their findings but it
seems those who were "wrong" have changed the course of this world with their "debunked" findings. Yet people still hold dear to these so called
"professionals" or "experts" who say that they are correct and those who find otherwise are false, fake, amateurs, frauds, etc.
History repeating itself due to pride and fear.
