Wrong again. New ideas WITH SOLID EVIDENCE are the foundations of
careers in science. I, and every other scientist out there, would love
to get our hands on some paradigm-shattering new results...we would
be published in all the big time journals, Science would write a "news
and views" on our research, we'd get funded! As it is, I have to go back
to the hard work of trying to extract meaning from lots of difficult
experiments, instead.
