Explanation

there is nothing that makes more upset scientists than an observation that comes from another field. An example could be cited the derogatory answer gave to the hypothesis of the dinosaurs extinction.

The first sentence is a fact : something truly upset the scholar.

The second sentence says to understand and see this in reality is enough that we observe or the observation.

Exposition is clearly wrong and out of scope under this view
