Pathomorphology of Acute Pancreatitis
Many heresies of the past have become the orthodox views of later times. In fact, progress in science is made possible through the generation of new and different ideas that are then tested for validity. It is common and natural for these new ideas to be met with resistance. The tension between the established and the new serves at least as an incentive to determine which is the better concept. In some cases, useful understandings emerge from the dialog that results from the opposing ideas. It is also possible, of course, for the new ideas to be wrong. In this case the shortcomings of the proposed new perspective usually become obvious over time, and the pursuit of the new concept becomes merely a temporary diversion.
