In today's academic society, the likelihood of researchers succumbing to fundamentalism is a grave threat. In this paper, my main argument is that academics are often tempted to put their personal needs (i.e. recognition and opportunities for more money) ahead of their value for research. Consequently, it becomes easier for them to stray into a space where they are no longer being driven by scientific rigor and debate. Despite the internal and external pressures that we face, there is a need for vigilance to avoid this from occurring to ensure that the true notion of researching a science and our academic responsibility are fulfilled.
