Re: Banshee Thed, Although I agree this should be the case, too often I have seen that scientists in general can be so focused on their own ideological beliefs in a particular paradigm, cosmological belief, or pet theory, that they are unopen to thoughts that vie with their own beliefs, even when those thoughts may be correct. I am a research engineer at a University in the US and I have experienced this type of thought process so often I have almost lost hope that anyone will discover anything new. Without an open mind, Einstein would never have come up with the theory of relativity, it was far too radical an idea that went against conventional theory or thought at the time. Every major discovery in science has been this way, a radical alteration of the then current views on the universe. Yes, I require proof, but lack of proof does not imply lack of truth, just a lack of understanding or knowledge on humanity's part.
