The reality of anomalies had been known for more than 50 years now, clear and objective procedures exist to duplicate the observations of anomalies, but the scientific community is still paralyzed, many social factors are involved, but the suppression is there and it is extraordinarily effective.
Modern Academic Establishment and the Church.
Many people had heard about the actions of the Church against Galileo when Galileo revealed his heliocentric views and his discovery of Jupiter's moons.
That historical fact is frequently used as an example of the reaction of dogmatism and closemindeness to new ideas.
But it is not equally known how stablished scientific institutions and known academics had reacted many times in similar fashion to new ideas or facts.
The "classic" example that I had mentioned before was the reaction of Lavoisier and the French Academy of Sciences in the face of claims affirming the reality of meteorites.
Today we have a Scientific Stablishment that is doing regarding the reality of anomalies exactly what the Church did in Galileo's time and what the French Academic of Sciences did when presented with facts pointing to the reality of meteorites.
Today we see in a new light the Church actions because history repeat itself today with the actions, or no actions, of the current Scientific Stablishment.
It appears that the reaction to fundamental new facts/paradigms is almost always the same independently of the history point in time, it is a sociological reaction of the current "guardians of knowledge" to facts or ideas that place in danger the paradigms or worldviews that these guardians support.
Today the self apointed guardians of knowledge are scientists and so far their reactions to even a mention of anomalies is irrational as was the Church reaction to Galileo's ideas or Lavoisier's reaction to the idea of meteorites.
