Quote: The current work is a reaction to the ever-more unphysical blather that passes as physics research. Apparently people are finally getting fed up. What I find most troubling is that feeding on these bad ideas makes

Quote: Sorry for being so late to the party but I don't think much has changed at all in this regard. Scientists and quasi-scientists alike have always voraciously protected their 'turf'.As a grand example consider Popular Opposition to the Theory of Relativity in the 1920s. There were many publications, notably Arthur Patschke and his ether particle theory, that attacked Einstein at a scientific and personal level. Even after prediction after prediction bore fruit.In fact it took a new generation of scientists to really embrace the theory as it was difficult for the old guard to accept such revolutionary thinking and embrace the fact the physics as they had studied and understood it was totally turned on its head.The same can be said for your beloved LENR research. Almost no one accepts this as real simply because it violates physics 'as most understand it'. However, should a working examinable example come to market it will revolutionize, not only the world, but be a big pointer towards investigation of 'new' physics.Still, people in the scientific community tend to hear and see what they want to. No theory is perfect and rather than address the big part that seems to work, most antagonists will point to the little exceptions that don't.There is an old scientific saying, 'The truth is hidden in the details'. The tiny things that a theory fails on is always the loud neon sign pointing to new science. Case in point: The Ptolemaic model of the solar system gave great predictions but failed to explain a few things such as retrograde planetary motion. This little quirk put Copernicus on the road to a 'more correct' theory of planetary motion.Pesse (Such is the way of things) Mist
