Very well put!
I’ve been making these points for decades.
For a long time I argued with people about these issues pointing out the Scientific Method and that I actually have a Science degree while very few of the people opposing my view ever had any scientific education beyond middle school.
Eventually I realised that it was pointless as it had become a religion for these people.
This is the appropriate way to attack this issue. They have religious freedom to believe this unscientific rubbish but they are not allowed to force their religion on others.
