Take 2: The problem with science

I have come across an intriguing discussion about how change in scientific paradigm takes place, over at Nutrition and Physical Regeneration blog. 
Michael is an entertaining and intriguing writer and I very much enjoyed his post about the sociological insights of one Thomas S. Kuhn.  It explains a lot to me about why so many well educated people can't see what seems obvious to me.  Part of the problem is that I am relatively uneducated, but insatiably curious.  Without an education, I don't know or understand the prevailing paradigm and have to depend on pure reason, which may or may not be a disadvantage, depending on the situation. 
Fascinating food for thought.
