Guys, everyone has an 'off day'. Albert Einstein doubted the implications of his own work by refusing to believe the Universe was expanding - until the expansion was documented by Edwin Hubble. Albert Einstein also resisted the basic ideas of Quantum Mechanics. Sir Fred Hoyle is considered a luminary in the field of astronomy - but he wasted years trying to disprove the Big Bang. Everyone has an 'off day'. Sometimes, an 'off year'.
