Very true. Which is why science has a peer review portion, you must present your work, findings, and method to be reviewed by others in the field. Which is why getting set facts from studies takes time and so many things are unfolding right now. Screaming that there is conflict must mean we're being lied to is just ignorant of the entire scientific process.
Lol. Western science is all about who pays more. If science were about science, scientists wouldn't be chasing after high Hirsch index values.
