This is a list of Scientists whose careers were ruined because their observations or explanations conflicted with the scientific mainstream, particularly when the mainstream was biased (see liberal bias).

  1. Ignaz Semmelweis was ostracized by his medical peers after demonstrating that an "invisible substance" caused childbed fever in pregnant women (1840s Vienna).
  2. Estel Melton was being ostracized by his peers after publishing a book that disproved the theory of evolution.[1]
  3. Guillermo Gonzalez lost out on a tenure track position for speaking out for intelligent design.
  4. Michael Behe has faced constant mockery for writing on intelligent design.
