All you've shown is that you don't know the difference between scientific theory and conjecture either. The scientific community doesn't use or teach conjecture because there is no evidence to back it. You know, like creationism or ancient aliens or a global flood.
I'm not "defending" the scientific community, the weight of evidence does that.
I'm assuming you took part in this poll?
Let's go through this one more time...
Scientific conjecture is taught as fact in schools. Whether or not you want to disagree with conjectures, the point is that it is taught as facts.
I don't know how old you are, but when I was in school, Neanderthals were taught as being a species that went extinct and that's it, because Cro Magnon replaced them.
Now we know that many Europeans, myself included, have Neanderthal percentages. And yet this has not been revised in the textbooks, which many students are led to believe that everything previously known about Neanderthal is still fact, therefore believable, even though the facts have changed.
Facts change all the time, but the point is, the education system isn't teaching that facts change.
