That statement, which is shared by many, IS COMPLETELY WRONG. Theories in science are assembled from facts. They explain many, many facts. Theories do not become facts, facts become theories.

The reason people “bash” others is because they have absolutely no clue about the physics of these issues and yet they act like they are uniquely qualified to comment. Read the article in Science and then read all the references in the article and get educated on the subject before you declare it is correct or not. Cosmology is not exactly a science that lends itself to scrutiny by people entirely ignorant of the vast amount of peer-reviewed work that has gone into current theories.
