Hi Bruno,

I agree. It is as if being very skilled in one field leads a person to the belief that they are infallible in any other. I have seen books that discuss this... Most of all, your point about arguments from authority must not be missed! ;-)

I have discovered that *many* scientist can be serious in a field and
very bad or even charlatan in another field.
It is certainly a reason to be skeptic of all authoritative arguments.
