Х Freud (Sigismund Schlomo F., 1856-1939) fits this list quite well too. However he goes even further.
When he does not understand something, he denies existence of this.
So, having quoted recollection by Leonardo da Vinci about event from his infancy, Freud declares this event to be not a fact, but a fantasy and imagination [ 132a, стр. 38]. Thereby he dares to consider himself much more reasonable than naive Leonardo.
To protect Leonardo, thank goodness, is unnecessarily, but there is a sense to note, that such familiar treatment of facts, is unfortunately not unique at all, and more likely is characteristic for exaggerated representatives of the science.
