On this episode of ID the Future, Dr. Frank Tipler discusses how leading science journals are increasingly hostile to new ideas, publishing only papers that are consistent with the dominant views of the scientific community. Tipler argues that if Einstein were to try and get a paper on his relativity theory published under today’s peer-review system, he would certainly be rejected, reminding us that academia needs to encourage scientists to challenge conformity in order to cultivate great thinkers.
