19. "Not all religions are evil Christianity, and not all Science is right." This is a nonsensical...

 

sentence. In fact, it shows a gross ignorance of science and what it is. Here is what it is not, a belief system. It is a process for trying to eliminate as many biases as possible to come to as accurate a picture as possible of reality. It can no more be "right" or "wrong" as algebra. Some people can be bad at it, but, like algebra, there are processes in place that allow others to check your work, and if its found inaccurate, it is corrected.

Also, just a note, you have linked to someone's personal blog who seems to have several odd ideas about science, and actually calls on us using our fallible senses as the hard output. Seems like a direct misapplication of science, and a gross misunderstanding, or I should say, half understanding of it.
