As a physicist, right off the bat this ticked me off.

Example: #1 it's not that you misunderstand entropy. You just misunderstand the term "order."

Some of these facts are ok though. Wormholes are science fiction. But if your school teaches you otherwise, your school sucks.

calling any current theory from Cosmology a "fact" despite the absence of any empirical data calls into question his understanding of the designation of "fact".

When a scientists types "fact" as a form of puffery , exaggeration, and shit tossing, they very know that in science there are almost no facts, other than in applied mathematics. Its understood its not really a 'literal fact".

But for the record, I cringed too.
