For example, what is the point in saying "Einstein is wrong" if you do not have any fact against his theory nor any mathematically consistent alternative explanation?

Religious people often deny natural laws in favor of god(s) and they call it "alternative explanation" too. But there are no facts or mathematically consistent theory to back their claims. Therefore simply saying "energy conservation law can be wrong" is pointless. Facts? Equations?

So, scepticism is great as long as you have some substantial matter to support your claim.
