    building your field of study on sand inevitably leads to destruction. how did something based on the beliefs of a few people with ridiculous ideas become classed as a science in the first place. bid ideas do not translate often into provable facts or falsifiable theories. just my take on how this teacher follows dogma when he knows it will lead to the same poor experiments of the past.
