Remember, science can be wrong.  At one point, to everyone, the world used to be flat.  How do we know that we haven’t messed up somewhere else?

Not comparable.  That was not science, that was a belief.  Once it was explored, that belief was proven wrong by the FACTS.  

God, people who use that comparison annoy me. “We can’t trust modern science because before we endlessly worked on and improved upon it to create the modern scientific method, we were wrong about things!” Yeah, no shit. The scientific method is how we found out we were wrong. That’s the point of science. 

Is this logic and reasoning, on my dash?! You bet it is.
