Modern science is a two-edged sword that cuts both ways, my OEC friend.
World-class astronomer Halton Arp was told not to publish his discordant
red-shift observations. So he complied by writing a book of his
findings. As a result, Arp was denied telescope time by the guardians
of the Big Bang. Last I heard, Arp is living in West Germany where he
has greater freedom to pursue the truth.
