wtf did i just readI find your reverence for the priests of science strange and unnerving. Unless you admit that many the institutions are filled with pseudo-scientists.... and that anyone calling their BS gets called a heretic because he dared poke the sacred cow.
Your argument seems to broadly follow a rule of thumb of "those that conform are scientists and those that do not are pseudo-scientists, Universities are the holy temples that only produce truth, etc."
Also you seem to falsely represent the apparent opposing viewpoint, it's not that that the current theories are wrong it's that they are potentially wrong and subject to potential total scrapping and that no worldview should be built upon such shakey ground, that utter faith in such a theory is itself religious etc.
Such views are becoming blatently common with many proven pseudo-scientists like Bill Bye calling for the heretics (thoug he would not dare to use the word or even think of it) to have their children removed from them because they don't believe in man made global warming. His alarmist position being we should first believe it and then properly prove it because it's too dangerous to do it the other way around first. I should add I suppose that there is no actual concensus and most actual climate scientists giving MMGW lip service do so because they don't wanna get fired.....
I'm quite sure these super-human beings you refer to as "true scientists" don't actually exist.....
