Because I agree there entirely.

I'm saying things like, for example, the age of the earth, cannot be proclaimed as a fact, because it had a false fact beforehand. See what I'm saying?

Scientists are finding new information everyday. We're never going to know everything, so we go by what we have until a new finding comes to light. How is that like a religion? If anything, it's the exact opposite of religion.
