But you're talking about traditional belief systems, not science. Since science started with Galileo (arguably) it has consistently refined its models of our world. Science progresses by correcting its own errors. Science is the study of the laws of nature, and nature doesn't change to suit cultural preferences.<quoted text>
You are completely ignorant of history. Easily demonstrated by looking at any culture at any time in history. Consensus in “science” is totally meaningless now as it was then.
Go to some Island and see what their consensus is concerning anything resembling “science” and compare it to another culture.
Religions don't usually admit to errors. Religions tend to diverge, because religion deals with things that aren't subject to evidence.
