First people say : It is absurd
Then they say : May be
Finally they say : We knew it all along
But scientific community refuses to heed.
An Israeli scientist Dan Shechman was mocked and insulted by his colleagues who also exiled him from his research group. His sin was his claim that he stumbled upon a new crystalline chemical substance that violated the known laws of nature. Dan Shechman won the 2011 Nobel Prize1 in chemistry1. Dan Shechman said, “A good scientist is a humble and listening scientist and not one that is sure 100 per cent in what he read in the text books.”
Only recently we saw how leading science journals nature and lancet wrote against Peter Duesberg who was fortunately cleared2 by his university (University of California, Berkeley.) but Bruce Charlton had to pay the price3 for daring the establishment. What was the sin of Duesberg? He published a paper arguing that there is “as yet no proof that HIV causes AIDS” in Medical Hypothesis a non peer review journal that was till recently edited by Bruce Charlton. The ideas of Duesberg go against the commercial interests of the pharmaceutical industries of US that produce drugs against HIV.
Atheists made Darwinism their religion and evolution of species according to them is due to errors during DNA replication! Where as the recent reports suggest that DNA molecules can be intelligent. Studying neural network computation with DNA strand displacement cascades, it has been shown4 recently that molecular systems can exhibit autonomous brain – like behaviours. Calculator built with DNA molecules can solve square-root problems 5, 6 too. Researchers have built the largest and most sophisticated system yet that performs calculations using DNA.
It appears that few scientists suffer from Eddington syndrome7 as a result of which really brilliant scientists are discouraged.
