as a comment my FIRST neuro had this point of view also, they ARE out there just not in sufficient numbers to influence the overall opinion of the neurology community at large.
But if there's enough of them it will help the switch in what "everyone knows" I read a paper one time that suggested the tipping point is 30% as soon as that level is reached a new idea gains momentum but before that it remains a "finge" idea.
A recent debate surrounding the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis is analysed in terms of the skills, interests and backgrounds of the medical personnel involved. It is noted that the proponents of the vascular theory possess developed expertises in interpreting disease in structural, vascular terms, whereas their opponents' skills lie in immunology or neurology. Different observers have produced different conceptions of the disease because modes of observation, and the points from which observation takes place, differ. It is also noted that the debate over the causation and treatment of MS has occurred between a large and powerful social group and a weak and marginal one. The effects of this power inequality on the production and assessment of knowledge about MS are investigated.

Unfortunately we have to deal with reality and accept that it took a long time for science to accept that the earth was not the center of the universe and that it was not flat but round.

Naturally because the sun is the real center of the universe, from the perspective of the earth, the planets seem to move in loop de loops as we look at them from here, so he devised very complicated mathematical formulas that predcited with complete accuracy where the planets would be next.
I absolutely agree this is entirely possibleSo maybe we're at a point where Zamboni has figured out the planets orbit the sun, and we're justing waiting for Copernicus to come along with the incremental piece of the puzzle that ties it all together.
