      Reason 1) I get the feeling that one of the biggest reasons why so many people challenge the sciences in its validity is due in part to them believing that it is some giant enemy in which conflicts with there ideals and beliefs and they feel as though they are obligated to go against this "paradigm."
      Reason 2)Also another reason may be that they wish to be "on top" of the pyramid so to speak. In which they want to be the next einstein or dirac. In the same vein as a pop star.
      Reason 3) Or there is also the conventional reason in which they are just curious about the subject manner and want to dig deeper into it to gain a more of an understanding.
      Because I like labels I will define each reason for easier representation.
      Reason 1) The Belief Upenders
      Reason 2) The Stars Chasers
      Reason 3) The Curiously Minded
