Time To Reconsider


An important scientific innovation rarely makes its way by gradually winning over and converting its opponents: What does happen is that the opponents gradually die out." -- Max Planck, pioneer of quantum theory

I love this quote.

Most people think science is all math and ultimate reality. - Certainly high school physics and biology teachers pretend that is true. Some may even believe it.

In reality, the more you know about a subject, the more you know that it is filled with the unknown and unknowable.

And now there is a new challenge to current physics; and some of the followers of Planck are refuting it on the basis of its novelty. - It has not been around long enough to be considered real.

It may not be real, but it does show that the basis for modern science is tradition more than it is science. - If an idea has stood for 50 years it has huge emotional support and baggage.

All those articles written in all those fancy journals may be wrong, a life in the lab and all that status lost. - it can not be sacrificed just to face the truth.

I have a scientific idea of my own, but if it is ever adapted it will not likely be in my lifetime.

But I will hear some ridicule from those that have a vested interest in the last 100 years of argument.

Ya gotta love Planck.

And this one from Albert Einstein
"If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it."


And the best I can do are:

"I err therefore I am."


"My own reflection hides the view through the window."

Allan R. Wallace
