You have fallen into the “bulk of evidence” fallacy, which is the mistake of thinking that truth is determined by the bulk of evidence. For many nonscientific reasons, such as fear of being labeled a “science denier” and the ease of getting grants and promotions, the majority of scientists by definition work in the mainstream. If you take the long view, the mainstream is always wrong. Otherwise, we would still believe the sun revolved around the earth.
