Not every instance of science marching on is an example of Science Marches On. You need to follow the trope description, not just the trope name.

Rubber Band History is "history starts out different, but turns into our history by the end". "reality changes tend to, over the centuries, 'smooth out' and converge on the same timeline" is a different trope.

The point of the trope *is* that the timeline ends up being ours. (It makes no difference whether, in-story, the timeline was ours before; the point is how it ends up. Many of the examples on the trope page are from stories that start out with a completely different timeline. On a meta-level the use of the trope implies that any change toward our timeline is a change "back" to how it "should be", even if in-story the timeline's never actually been that way before.) The current version of the trope description is very confusingly written; I consider rewriting it every time I look at it.
