In one experiment, modern violins and old Stradivarius violins and a Giuseppe del Gesù Guarneri violin were played behind a curtain for experts to judge which sounded the best. And guess what: they voted a Stradivarius the worst of the bunch! Moreover in a large blind testing experiment audiences preferred certain modern violins over the certain Stradivarius violins played at the time (here). Archived here.
Watch the documentary from this relevant point (but the whole documentary is well worth a watch).
The findings outraged the so-called "expert" violin industry, just like the busting of the Darwin myth has so upset blind faith pseudo-scientific Darwin fans everywhere.
Does the truth sometimes do more harm than a lie? Is that what these short sighted credulous idiots think? Do they actually think that it does? If so, why are they not on the side of truth? Maybe it's just the malevolent corrupt Darwin Industry that is engaging in post-truth misinformation on this topic to save face and make more money?
