FYI, very few real scientists have accepted some "ordinary view" or "consensus". You may go back as far as you like in history. Those individuals who discovered valuable and meaningful knowledge were generally frowned upon for challenging the "ordinary view".
Nonsense. Most scientists accept the consensus view of their peers about most things, not surprisingly, as it is often rather well-founded. Perhaps you mean, "most brilliantly iconoclastic scientists, with names I have heard of, rejected conventional wisdom." But that's part of the definition of a brilliant iconoclast. Of course the great famous scientists overturned conventional wisdom. That does not mean most of them do it all the time. 99% of science is slow, painstaking and incremental.
And most of those who disagree with conventional wisdom are crackpots, not geniuses. I think H J Eysenck put it nicely. "They laughed at Newton. They laughed at Einstein. But they also laughed at Koko the Clown".
