been proved wrong, you have quoted many of them yourself. A
particular example which I like is a science book from 1912 which I
have in my posession, which ascertains that the craters on the moon
are caused by extinct volcanic activity-that theory was accepted less
than a century ago, but as we are now aware, the craters are caused
by impacting meteors.

Unconscious cover-ups are common, and are generally called ignorance,
(though some could be considered negligence, eg BSE and Thalidomide)
which is perfectly normal and acceptable, so long as efforts are made
to verify or dispel existing theories. If a theory appears to fit the
facts, there is no reason to deny it's validity unless a new theory
or experimentation shows it to be incorrect. Both of the latter are
probably a daily occurence in highly specialised fields.

conscious cover-ups exist, and it is a certainty that unconscious
cover-ups exist (through ignorance/negligence), but I think the
statistical odds are that both types of cover-up will ultimately be
exposed. Particularly in respect of claims of alien contact dating
back 50 years or more, I think _that_ conspiracy is past it's sell-by
