This illness is seen with lot of people, people do not look at deeper possibilities just because historically results have been different.
I do not know what happens in other parts of the world, but then I have noticed this in my part of the world.
1. Suppose a XYZ practical has to give the result 0.0031 units, and if we students get 0.021 units we were given low grades?
Question: Cannot there be intrusions responsible for the change in the parameters? Is a practical about ignoring noticed changes? Shouldn’t marks be provided looking at the way a practical is performed, irrespective of the results noticed?
2. A person is reporting an unusual occurrence. But then the book says “It is not possible, the Sun rises at 7.00 am in the morning and sets at 6.00 pm in the evening.”, so nothing unusual is seen.
Question: Does everything need to behave the way they behave because they historically behaved that way?
Why does “Science syndrome” occur?
Many people would start with
“Oh, it is not possible”, while some would stop here itself!!!”
while rightfully it should have been
“lets check, but then historically such is never seen… strange!!!”
