The only way to know whether something really is the truth or not
is by doing science. But so far, I have seen very little science
being done, or even referred to.
Feel free to refer to any research proving your standpoint.

So why not doing it right, and point at any scientific research, which would
prove the statements, when stating something non-obvious?
Statements without scientific proof are just _opinions_.
Others may well have other, and contradictive, opinions.
