Things like a flat earth that was the center of the universe was religious consensus more than anything.
All decent scientists are skeptics. There is no such thing as an absolute statement in true science. This doesn't mean that the evidence doesn't mean anything, or that an overwhelming mountain of evidence isn't a good enough reason to factor it into the scientific world view.
You're only further proving my point that not only do you not understand science, but you don't even know what it is.
