Considering what you spew here, you must have been the bottom students as you clearly understood nothing of it.

You do so many mistakes here it is hard to know where to start.
1: Agreeing with mainstream does not imply one cannot think independently. One can study all the material and reach the conclusion that mainstream is indeed correct and it was all reached through independent thought.
2: Thinking independently does not mean anything you reach is of any value. Independent thought based on ignorance is worthless.
