I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough. Nobody says the consensus of scientists agrees that E=mc2. Nobody says the consensus is that the sun is 93 million miles away. It would never occur to anyone to speak that way. . . .It's also worth remembering that at the time of Galileo the consensus among scientists favored the Tychonic model of the solar system, and that the scientific consensus opposed Ignaz Semmelweis's advocacy of antiseptic procedures.
