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.
