Well, indeed. As a history student I must keep in mind (probably more than those who study STEM) that our perspective of reality is very voluble and newer perspectives can come and replace the ones we've been taught and we must be very open (but also critic) with new discoveries and contributions.

That doesn't mean we have to distrust everything because, even when there's always room for debate and for corrections, chances are that if this one hypothesis has more evidences than others, it also is as close as reality as we can get right now. And that's very important.

I heard a very similar thing about walking through a door.

There is a 0.0000000000000000000000000000000001% chance of walking through a door with all the atoms shifting around you so it's technically not impossible. The same way that it's not impossible that dinosaurs never existed, I obviously believe that they do. But there is no denying that there's a chance they didn't. Anyone who thinks that Science is 100% accurate just looks blindly at what they are told

I guess that's true, but working with such small chances hypothesis is just stupid. And your logic is also applicable not only to science but also to everything else. Nothing is 100% or 0%, absolutely nothing. Not even what we see nor what we feel. Nothing at all. But, is it profitable to think like that? To think "there's a super small chance of this or that so we can't talk about this is what happened even when we have evidences"? I don't think so.

Yeah, you are right. Nothing is ever 100% true or false. But there's nothing (be it science, be it whatever) that provides a 100% fiability of gathering data or information. Maybe that's what thellamafama tried to say? Maybe, but in that case, he should've worded it better.

that's the difference with religion. Religion is a belief of absolute certainty in something.

As for whether it is profitable to encompass infinitely small possibilities - most often not. But one has to remember, even if from your perspective something has a very low chance of happening, you are not omniscient. The chance of something happening is precisely a human trying to predict an outcome based on the data he has. But the reality is that events are determined by countless occurances before that.

In other words, it's important to leave a room for different than the established possibilities, because even if from our perspective it may seem as extremely unlikely to be true, we can not accurately ascertain the chances of it happening either.

While you do have a point, stating that "it's not 100% sure that dinnosaurs existed" when we have fossils it's kind of ridiculous. Maybe the dinnosaurs we picture aren't the real ones, maybe they are completely different, maybe they weren't even dinnosaurs exactly. But it's kind of obvious that something existed and that's what's the point here, I believe, that trying to deny that is stupid.

It's not 100%. It is never 100%.
There are countless possibilities how that could've happened in some other way. And while the chance of all the bones being created from the fart of the spaghetti monster after it has stayed there for exacly 1 billion years and 1 seconds and then suddenly transformed into what looks like a proper bone structure to us is infinitely low, like less than 0.000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000001% , it is still not zero.

Nothing is ever 100% and nothing is never 0%.

Here's a fun fact I was told back a long while ago. Theoretically speaking if you punch a wall, there is a chance for your fist to pass right through it. The chance is less than 1:10^number of years the universe has been estimated to exist

but there is still a chance.

Well alligators and crocodiles have been around since the time of the dinosaurs but that doesn't mean they are. Jellyfish have been around since the dinosaurs but you just call them fish right
