anathema: definition, quote

1. a person or thing detested or loathed: That subject is anathema to him.
2. a person or thing accursed or consigned to damnation or destruction.
3. a formal ecclesiastical curse involving excommunication.
4. any imprecation of divine punishment.
5. a curse; execration.




There is also anecdotal evidence -- and although such stories may be anathema to hard science, they can provide the basis for research questions.
