Scientists are shameless whores when it comes to guilt by omission.
Whenever they see evidence they don’t like, they ignore it.
It gets worse, then they conspire to shame any offending author, cut his funding, and often provide fake counter-arguments to preserve their status quo point of view. Ask Graham Hancock.

Is the Peer Review Process a Scam? – enago academy
“In 2005, researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) created a software program called SCIgen that randomly combined strings of words to generate fake computer science papers. The objective of the exercise was to prove that the peer review process was fundamentally flawed and the conferences and journals would accept meaningless papers. After being notified by other researchers who were tracking those SCIgen papers, journals were still quietly pulling articles as late as 2014.”
I remember a story about French post-modern philosophers in the 1970s, who received a document from a renowned physicist who pranked them. He took all their, what Chomsky calls, unintelligibly garbled reasoning, and he rearranged and regurgitated all those fine words and blessed them with a kiss. That kiss was a tacit endorsement of their reasoning. They forgot to verify and corroborate what the physicist said before publishing it. They looked like fools.
