    The great biologist Louis Pasteur suppressed ‘awkward’ data because it didn’t support the case he was making. John Snow, the ‘first epidemiologist’ was doing nothing others had not done before. Gregor Mendel, the supposed ‘founder of genetics’ never grasped the fundamental principles of ‘Mendelian’ genetics. Joseph Lister’s famously clean hospital wards were actually notorious dirty.

These distortions of the historical record mostly arise from our tendency
