Conflicting theories

Conflicting theories can exist in any science or discipline. The geocentric view of the old dogmas conflicted with the scientific results of Johannes Kepler, Giordano Bruno and Galileo Galilei. Those dogmas were considered as real science by the papacy and the mainstream scholars[?] in their times. Once many scientists and thinkers claimed that the speed of the first automobile would kill the passengers, and Man will never walk on the moon.

The human sciences[?] are the most favourable environment for the genesis of conflicting theories. Frequently two fierce camps can be distinguished in basic issues of anthropology, ancient history, Biblical studies[?], evolution or linguistics. Usually one side condemns the theories of the other side as unscholarly[?] and unscientific. The mere mention of these words is sometimes enough to get a final verdict; the advantages or the good logic in the opposing theory[?] does not need to be examined scientifically.
