I'm not sure why it seems like this is science vs. the truth at the bottom.
A must see for the religious who have difficulty with the meaning of theory, and reality for that matter.

I like the Occam's Razor panel, in particular.

"A theory is a universally excepted idea"
No no no no. 窶oea well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world, based on a body of facts that have been repeatedly confirmed through observation and experiment.窶
No faaabio. Theories are not made before experiments. Hypotheses are made before experiments. A theory is a universally excepted idea, almost a fact.
a simplified explanation of scientific process but quite good.
