18. Two good points I really respect.
That you brought up:

1) Scientific truth does not look at itself is infallible, therefore there is no such thing as scientific fact, only scientific theory, which is mutable and changes. Science is also limited in that it deals with a subset of knowledge, quantitative mutually observable phenomenon, and there is a whole world outside of that, not just religion but things like art.

2) History has now shown that religion is not the source of man's woes, as demonstrated by things like eugenics and the forced athiesm of brutal communist dictatorships. Man is the source of man's woes.
