Science and medicine are more correct than your divine intuition.

The "profit motive" of "divine intuition" is satisfying your ego, or continuing to confirm the biases that you make up for yourself, or something similar that applies to your personal situation. There is no disinterested inquiry. At least with science, medicine or the humanities, the pressure to produce results or (for for-profit-funded endeavors) profit is offset by the need to tie results to observable phenomena gained using reviewable methods. It's possible to call a study on bullshit, to criticize openly-demonstrated funding sources, or to point out that another interpretation fits the available text or data. You've verified nothing about your intuition, and meanwhile the research out there is stacked against it.

So no, having a profit motive does not automatically discredit ideas.
