The fire was discovered by unprepossessed und unprejudiced thinking and boldness. Free of all the existing theories that taking a dry wooden stick, lighting it and carrying it from place to place will cause bad luck.
Was the discovery of fire unscientific from the modern point of view? Yes, it was. But still it was somewhat important.
Is trying to heat and pressurize different material compositions unscientific? Yes. But still it can lead to the discovery of new physical effects.
physicists like to say how perfect their standard model is.. for more funding.
QCD is an incredibly bad theory compared to quantum electrodynamics.
3 years ago a tetraquark state was discovered at lhc and confirmed with more than 5 sigma.
During my quantum field courses at university I read a book about QCD. on the first few pages a proof was given that bound 4 quark states can under no circumstances exist...
what is dark matter? What is 95% of the universe made of. Many conservative Physicists dont know but still they say " how perfect their standard model is". Ridiculous.
Unscientific does not mean unimportant.
