The Status Quo is full of idiots not innovators
Why? Simply because the real innovators and geniuses are the ones that society thinks are crazy and will often exile or isolate in order to maintain the flawed status quo.
But since results can convince even the most retarded of fools that something can be profitable, eventually society comes to pretend that it always accepted things like the Wright Brother’s flight experiment or electricity.
Society does not generally do that, because those things are strange and foreign to the accepted wisdom of the time. The accepted wisdom of the time is pretty dumb, when all is said and done.
So when people use the propaganda programmed command lines of the Left in saying the “science is settled”, only fake scientists would ever believe that kind of science.
