It seems as though our pattern as humans is to discredit "unconventional ideas". To call people crazy for having an idea that is different. And, "seems" to them false.
I'm wondering if people could provide specific examples of scientists, doctors, theorists who were once ridiculed, or considered "crazy" for their ideas but, later vindicated?
