The Stupidity of science and ppl

We are aware of the fact that in olden days around 18th r 19th century the science society encouraged and criticised a lot of scientists.... but the criticism wat i thnk is really very partial and idiotic.....

Let us take the papers on the periodic table for an instance.....
John Alexander Reina Newlands... he proposed "The Law Of Octaves".... according to Newlands every eighth element in the periodic table resembled the first, wen arranged in the order of increasin atomic number, as in the octaves of music.... but wen newlands first proposed this idea and compared it with octaves all he got in reply was criticism and insult.... he was openly insulted because of his musical knowledge..... and he was also partly accused for humiliating the researches in science....

let us look at another scenario..... "The Plum Pudding model"..... JJ Thompson was a genius at that time.... but the mathematical model tht he proposed was compared to the british treat "plum pudding" and hence the name......so isnt this nt an insult to science and research???..... how come the respected and revered members allow this name to be in convention...???

Newland's law of ocatves was later indirectly proved by Dmitri Mendeleev...even though he didnt get any theoretical or mathematical(if any) excerpts from Newland's theory... Also Newland was the first person to leave the periodic table incomplete and said tht new elements will occupy the left out positions.....which was again prone to criticism.... Newland was the first person to barely giv the prediction of an element in accordance wit his law of octaves....YEAH!!!... Newland was the first person to predict the existence of Germanium.... and it did exist... even though mendeleevs table had sum discrupancies(sry if i spelt it rong) it was well appreciated tht time... so shldve been the law of ocatves...

Let us luk at the second case.... the plum pudding model is no way nearer to the original model of the atom which we study rite now...after it was proposed in 1904... ernst rutherford disapproved it completely within the next five years...jus because thompson proposed the idea wit mathematical proof.... we are forced to study his ideas to xpress our gratitude for his contribution to his research in science..but we neglected newland's law since it was more "laymanly"....

so the final say is.... never misjudge anyone's ideas and dont humiliate them.... their ideas mite be the basis for many more inventions and discoveries.....
hail NEWLAND

(correct me if sumthing is rong in my post)
