There is a reward structure in science that is very interesting: Our highest honors go to those who disprove the findings of the most revered among us. So Einstein is revered not just because he made so many fundamental contributions to science, but because he found an imperfection in the fundamental contribution of Isaac Newton.
In ‘Wonder and Skepticism’, Skeptical Enquirer (Jan-Feb 1995), 19, No. 1.
Sagan again. What a genius.
