It wasn’t said that Chazal knew ALL of science. But whatever science they DID discuss or write of, they knew from Torah sources. And since their knowledge — of the scientific items they actually discussed — derived from the Torah, it is certainly more correct that the science of the scientists (of their times or our times) even if we don’t understand the scientific concepts that Chazal are relating.

Slifkin does not believe Chazal knew more than their contemporary scientists. He frequently mocks that belief and those that believe that.
Anyone remember which godol a few hundred years ago had the same name as his father in law, so upon marriage he added a name to himself and thereafter was called by his additional name?

Even if he is strong and interacted with such people previously he should still not be placed in such a predicament.

Slifkin, on his blog, is constantly and consistently attacking and being mevaze many rabbonim. Sometimes individually by name and oftentimes large groups of rabbonim without specifying all the individualy rabbonim but being clear which large groups of rabbonim he is attacking. And not just criticizing, but ferociously attacking.
