Harvard physicist Avi Loeb fends off attacks from critics after study reveals possible ‘interstellar’ life

Harvard physicist and professor, Dr. Avi Loeb, takes exception to critics about his theories of possible alien life in the universe, especially those he calls “theologians who argue that they don’t need to look through Galileo’s telescope because they know the answer.”

“The root of the problem is having an opinion and a prejudice and behaving as if you are the adult in the room,” Loeb told Fox News Digital when asked about critics of his theories.

That was just one of many rebukes that Loeb had for scientists who have bashed his recent study, which has quickly made headlines around the country.
