Flawed bodies of knowledge

Too many “experts” start from the position that our current understanding is correct, and anomalous results must be wrong. I have been saying for quite a while now that not only is science broken, but all disciplines are broken. I have informed opinions on the brokenness of science and the work of academics in general. You can be an absolute master of the body of knowledge of your discipline, and also of the schisms which invariably exist in any discipline, and be dead wrong on a large number of topics, because the body of knowledge in your discipline is very flawed. You can be an expert in bullshit to be more blunt.
