By the way the fact that Berkeley folks have been doing nuclear science for a while also makes it likely that they know their chops... Like a lot.
And that they have been trained (propogandized/indoctronated) by the system, owe the system for their livelyhoods and, seduced by the arrogance and
power of position, unwilling to acknowledge the long view. Scientists are known for thier myopic vision, they are specialists not generalists.
You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about (which I started to suspect, but before long you made it abundantly clear). Scientists reinvent
science almost every day. That's how it moves forward. And whether they "owe the livelihood" to the system, or the system owes its survival to them is
not very clear. Your last statement is especially laughable since there have been many, and still are, polymaths among the scientists, well versed in
multiple disciplines and sciences.
I don't see how one can say that the scientists are "myopic" when they consider extra dimensions in the world we are living in, they discovered the
quantum mechanics which is far from the normal everyday sort of expected logic, they realized just how complex gravitation is (and thus made your GPS
works). It's just hilarious to observe here on ATS how some armchair philosopher with apparently lacking any scientific talents goes about dissing the
bright minds who made this world tick.
Note how you resorted to an ad hominem with regard to scientists, whereas the original statement was pure math and statistics. Duh.
