If someone claims that expansion of universe is "bull", he is either:

a)unfamiliar with red shift (which was discoverd long ago and confirmed over and over). Well, then he have to educate himself by facts first.

b) familiar but does not see the difference between fact and hypothesis. Well, then he has problems with definitions (does not know what is a fact and what is a hypothesis) and posiibly with logical thinking.

c) denies facts because his faith contradicts to those facts. Well, then the contradicting to fact part of his faith is incorrect.

What do you think of people denying fact of expansion of space?.

And also what do you think of people denying natural laws?

How about people not knowing natural laws? Can they claim that laws are incorrect because they are unfamiliar with them?

Also, what do you do when someone says that Pithagorean theorem is bullshit? Or 2x2=4 is "bullshit and just a someone's (mathematician's) personal opinion."?
