Real scientists are rare
An honest scientist who never got a Nobel Prize
The story of Fred Hoyle
There are two kinds of scientists:
1. “Go along to get along” politicians
2. Real scientists
Real scientists are rare.
Cosmologist Fred Hoyle was one of the rare ones.
The “go along to get along” politicians go along with whatever the consensus is – even if it’s patently stupid and unsupportable.
Real scientists go wherever the truth takes them regardless of the consequences – and there are consequences.
Far from living in a “Gold Age” of Science, we live in an era where original thought is discouraged, innovation is stifled, and politicians – not scientists – get the prizes.
