Take ancient greek discovery that Earth is round, or Euclidian geometry discovery, or Newton's discovery that F=Gm1m2/d2, or Einstein's general relativity, or Maxwell equations, etc - they are valid, accurate laws and will be valid forever (and in use forever). So, we are actually should be proud by great discoveries of science in the past.

We will likely be embarassed by our religious past as we are now embarassed about crusades and inquizition). Also we will be embarassed that what we thought of creator and mover of bodies in universe (Allah, Jahove, etc) does not exist - same way as when we grow up, then sooner or later we become slightly embarassed to recall that once we truly belived in Santa the toy maker / toy gifter.
