They shared hypotheses and creative speculations about new ways of perceiving and creating reality. In their journal communications they challenged traditional paradigms and initiated revolutions in epistemology, methodology, theology, and politics. Now that they have become powerful, the scientists have become authoritative. Simple sharing of curiosity, wonder, personal experiences, hypotheses, and creative speculations which might challenge traditional ways are not permitted in their professional journals. Only definitive findings about which doubt has been removed are welcome in the authoritative journals. One way of inhibiting challenges to the traditional scientists' paradigms is to require that all articles submitted for publication in an authoritative journal be written in conformity with the traditional paradigms' standards regarding proof, evidence, analysis, language, style, and tone. It is impossible to challenge a traditional paradigm while showing respect for its most basic assumptions in the expression of the challenge. If scientists block the publication of challenges to their authoritative paradigms in their authoritative journals, then the revolutionary scientists will be forced to make their challenges in the political arena where the scientists present their requests for tax support to the state and federal legislative committees concerned with the health of science and engineering programs. A very large fraction of the cost of publishing authoritative scientists' journals is born by the taxpayers via research grants which include provision for paying page charges when research findings are published. Legislators should ask themselves if it is in the public interest to pay support for scientists' journals who censor their journals to inhibit the publication of challenges to paradigms which inhibit human dialogue. Taxpayers should not be supporting scientists who are blocking dialogue in order to protect their traditional paradigms from challenge in their authoritative journals. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
