“We've learned from experience that the truth will come out. Other experimenters will repeat
your experiment and find out whether you were wrong or right. Nature's phenomena
will agree or they'll disagree with your theory. And, although you may gain some temporary fame
and excitement, you will not gain a good reputation as a scientist if you haven't tried
to be very careful in this kind of work. And it's this type of integrity, this
kind of care not to fool yourself, that is missing to a large extent in much of
the research in cargo cult science.”
-- Richard Feynman
