Who Generate Knowledge ?
Sir Isaac Newton has conceptualized the theory of gravity in the beginning of 17th century. It was truly appreciated as an original contribution for the knowledge community; highly regarded as a discovery for mankind and a great invention of set of formulae for academic. From then on, people see it as ultimatum in physics and widely use it as knowledge contribution for several centuries. In 19th century, Albert Einstein has declared it as an incomplete idea and consequently overthrew it. So those people who accepted and accredited it for 200 years are now, being questioned for their credibilities in the field. Similarly, some portion of the Albert Einstein theory is incompactible today, with string theory created by Dr. Michio Kaku and his fellows. So technically, to whom the rights and previlages of accreditating 'the contemporary and cutting edge knowledge' should be given?
