-1950, Frank Scully
Although I still intend to do a more proper report on this (I apologize, but I just haven't had the time), this quote, from page 53, just hit me squarely (quoting from Charles Fort):
"Witchcraft," to quote another Fortean proverb, "always has a hard time until it becomes established and changes its name." He did not look upon all scientists as beneficent beings. He knew too well that every scientist who upheld a new idea brought upon himself abuse from other scientists. Or to use his own words: "Science has done its utmost to prevent whatever science has done."
