The Mayans who had no knowledge of the Bible knew more about the cosmos than these goat herders.

Yep. Unfortunately, it looks like many of these goat herders still walk the Earth today.

They no longer herd goats though. Now, they grow tea.

That's basically what science is all about! Isn't it grand? The more evidence they collect, the more their hypothesis evolve (ha) and the more conclusions they put together.

Unlike religious texts, science is forever able to change

No, it's not. Why would dinosaurs being warm-blooded invalidate evolution? That doesn't even make logical sense. Do you think any of this stuff through at all before posting it?

One is more a "knowing what we know now" one. "convenience" doesn't fit the definition. And neither is static.

Global warming has not "gone extinct." The majority of scientists agree with the hypothesis of incremental climate change--the polar ice caps are still melting, for example.
