There's an artistic corallary--just because you're misunderstood, does not make you an artist. Researcher 22:08, 24 November 2008 (EST)

Are we certain they still disbelieve Galileo over there? MarcusCicero 12:54, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Over where? ħuman 18:11, 25 November 2008 (EST)

I didn't know they ever "disbelieved Galileo" to begin with? And why do you ask? There's no mention (or at least, I didn't see one yesterday) of CP in the article? ħuman 15:57, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Maybe move?

The "Galileo gambit" appears to be a more widely used phrase for this? tmtoulouse 18:42, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

Well at least create a redirect from there to here... ħuman 21:21, 16 July 2009 (UTC)

 Unsupported assertion at the heart of the page

"There is no real correlation between being perceived as wrong and actually being correct". Evidence please for this assertion, or else remove or acknowledge that it is merely a speculative presumption (and highly dubious given so many cases of great ideas being at first rejected). Of course it can still be the case that most ideas that are rejected are unsound (though in my experience, the vast majority of ideas /in general/ are unsound). A fact which makes it all the harder for sound innovators to be appreciated as they get lumped in with those errants. — Unsigned, by: 86.143.52.188 / talk / contribs

Far more dubious ideas are rejected than the occasional good ones. The bad ones stay rejected and the good ones become accepted. ħuman 21:36, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

You should be right because you've followed proper scientific method, not because you're mocked for being wrong, I think is the heart of the matter. Galileo used Science and Logic to prove his Theories, while others who disbelieved him used Observation and Faith, Just because you're mocked for being Wrong, does not make you right.HKJGN (talk) 02:55, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
