The thing is scientific facts change every day, it was once a scientific fact that the planet was flat and that the stars rotated around the earth.
Sorry to tell you those were not scientific facts by today's standards. The scientific method
was not used to deduce those results however religion played a role in making sure people believed that far longer than they should have.
Scientific facts probably wasn't the best way to put it but actual scientific facts do not generally change. That is why they are facts. Fact water is
H2O. Heavy water is 2H2O or D2O.
The Scientific Hypothesis can change.
A Scientific Theory can be refined.(change)
Scientific laws on the other hand, well I am having a hard time coming up with some examples where they changed.
Do scientific facts change
One of the great things about science is the parts that do change.
Reason is the capacity for consciously making sense of things, applying logic, for establishing and verifying facts, and changing or justifying
practices, institutions, and beliefs based on new or existing information.
Religion is belief without reason. Every time Bill Nye said something about being a reasonable man at the debate I cracked up a little.
