But, the Science is Settled!
I know y'all get tired of these examples (but the link is pretty interesting).
This is how science is done. Always questioning, diverging, and occasionally denying!
Was Newton right and Einstein wrong? It seems that unzipping the fabric of spacetime and harking back to 19th-century notions of time could lead to a theory of quantum gravity.
Physicists have struggled to marry quantum mechanics with gravity for decades. In contrast, the other forces of nature have obediently fallen into line. For instance, the electromagnetic force can be described quantum-mechanically by the motion of photons. Try and work out the gravitational force between two objects in terms of a quantum graviton, however, and you quickly run into troubleóthe answer to every calculation is infinity. But now Petr Hořava, a physicist at the University of California, Berkeley, thinks he understands the problem. Itís all, he says, a matter of time.
Damned Relativity-deniers! Don't they know the science is settled!

Someday, global warming alarmists will be remembered with the church hierarchies who burned people at the stake for denying that the sun revolved around the Earth, or the believers in phlogiston and later the ether.
