I don't have a premium account so I can't create polls, but it seems this matter is an issue to some people. So is scientific fact a matter of opinion, yes or no?
My answer: no. The idea that scientific fact is a matter of opinion is contradictory. If you blur the line between fact and opinion, you make a fool of yourself. I have been recently enlightened that this is an issue to some people, especially BANDits (Birds-Are-Not-Dinosaurs activists) who uphold stances that scaly dromaeosaurs (raptor dinosaurs) look "cooler" than feathered dromaeosaurs (the latter of which is scientific fact, that dromaeosaurs were extensively feathered). On the surface, what is cool and what isn't is a matter of opinion. Though unfortunately, it isn't that simple with BANDits. Their opinion becomes a pseudoscientific argument when they attempt to reconcile their opinion with scientific support in order for them to ignorantly deny contemporary paleontology that contradicts their BANDit opinions, which by this point are not merely so. And that's where problems arise, when people delude themselves into believing something incorrect on no more dignified a basis than they want to believe it.
