A common religious claim that is presented as a scientific claim.

I think that the most commonly asserted religious claim being made today, which is presented as something scientific, is a variation of this statement: "I was born into the wrong body." That's a religious claim, not a scientific one, since it presupposes the existence of the soul. A more specific version is this: "I am a man born into a woman's body", or vice versa.

Thoughts?

Taken literally, you are right. But I think that it could also be seen as expressing a truth that those expressing it may lack the requisite knowledge and vocabulary to express in a more accurate manner. Kind of like someone saying they felt butterflies in their stomach.
