Devising testable hypotheses and not claiming them as truth until there is sufficient evidence is completely different from claiming things as fact without any evidence. Using the ambiguity of language to create false equivalences is intellectually dishonest.

Curious to see where in this thread anyone is posing something as fact without evidence. And there are many scientists who serious question whether string theory, the multiverse, and the universe=math are testable hypotheses. Not as sure about inflation.

And am not sure why the hypothesis that "intelligence preceded the physical universe" is less scientific or honest than the hypothesis that the physical universe occurred spontaneously, or less testable than string theory. Perhaps you can expound.
