Big Science is broken

Reproducibility failures everywhere, incentive structure stifles new theories challenging establishment ones, peer-review basically provides no value.  It's all here.

I'd like to see Big Science dethroned from its current perch as a modern day religion, but there are too many political groups invested in it for that to happen.

May consider calling the "gospel groups" instead since they are all singing from the same hymnal.
