that's not science. the scientific method, as clearly explained in that Sagan essay you've probably already read, having studies physics, is to say,
if there's no means of testing it, we'll have to be open to it, but wait until there is a means to actually study it.
if science doesn't accept this (correction: main stream science) - then it better change its approach, this is the science I disapprove.
Again, science doesn't ignore things, but we can't "prove" it without being able to observe it. You stated that scientists are closed minded. I
stated that scientists are actually more open minded than most people.
Lets use invisible alien probes for example. the science states that we are rather unlikely to ever meet any extraterrestrials, not that it's
impossible, nothing is, but unlikely because of the age of our civilization, and the scope of the galaxy let alone the universe.
But these are probes. We send probes all the time, that's more likely than actually aliens being here. So they are invisible. Well, science is
currently working on, you guessed it, invisibility.
So, if science were to approach this, and divert time and money into studying it, they'd first have to figure out what mechanism would achieve
invisibility. Gravity is one.
But again, there's nothing there to study as of yet, so it's mostly a wasted venture UNTIL there is enough evidence to support actually testing it
out. you know this, you studied physics.
