Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

We just had a rain pass through and I swear the drops were much bigger than the ones that fell last week when it rained. I'm now getting frightened that there may be something to this. Glad that under the new rules rationing daily power won't come into effect for a few more years. We will be caching up with Iraq and parts of Africa in our daily allotted power quotas. I fear for our children.

I could be wrong about a couple folks, if so, I apologize, but most of the folks I see opine about it wouldn't begin to grasp the science or lack thereof.

Its funny, i doubt any of you beleivers have read the climate research. Rather you have it explained to you by your media outlet of choice,, and it sure isn't Fox.

It makes perfect sense. A volcanic eruption can and has cooled the planet before. Many times in fact. Cleaner air allows more sunlight through which will heat the planet more and that heat will become trapped by the Co2...more.

"Laughs" and remains ignorant. What else is new

An interesting subject. Google "clean air causes global warming."

No, it's not.

So its fair to say that you don't much care what science has to say about this?

“Is it not true that the bible places the earth at about 6000 years old?”

I've heard different takes on that. Some have added up all the years of the patriarchs and come up with 6000. They're basing their analysis on a literal interpretation of the word “day” in God created the world in 6 days.

Others say that's not necessarily the case, based on another scripture that says something about a day being as a thousand years to God.

I don't obsess over which interpretation is correct because it doesn't require any action on my part. I just trust God to guide me when I need to make a decision.

Anthropogenic climate change is different, in part because it requires decision. (Not acting is a decision.)

Well Harry, is it not true that the bible places the earth at about 6000 years old?

And I’m quite happy to relate that the Bible and the work of its author, Jesus Christ, teach us how to remain patient and peaceful when faced with opposition. It teaches us that it’s okay to be angry, and how to be angry without responding in anger, and how to not let the sun set on our anger. Jesus Christ rescues us from the prison of our anger. And any other thing that threatens to imprison us.

That’s pretty cool with me, and I thank you for giving me the chance to point it out.

Well, Tiredofit, cards on the table. Let’s talk about what you see as a gap in my logic and reason. As I understand, the gap you see comes from my believing the Bible on some issues and science on others. And that’s a question I should answer.

Here’s my answer: I take the Bible as my most credible source. After that, I take physical evidence. The Bible and physical evidence often conflict.

The Bible doesn’t directly address every issue; it leaves believers free to decide some issues based on general principles and physical evidence. Climate change is one of these. The origin of man is not one. God clearly states that he created man. So I view the two issues as separate.

When explaining my views, I often quote the Bible. I understand and expect that some don’t accept the Bible as a credible source.

People of faith know that many view us as inconsistent, even hypocritical. The Bible warns us believers to expect opposition and even persecution; it goes with the territory.

Harry lets be clear. I don't have a problem with you personally. I do think you have a huge gap in your logic and reason. I also think you are hypocritical in your views of science in general. I can explain my views and have many times right here.

Harry it wa YOU that brought religion to the topic not I

You love to share bible quotes with us despite the fact no one asked, so I wonder what the bible has to say about the age of the earth, care to enlighten us?

“I understand why you are reluctant to answer the question as it exposes your hypocrisy on the topic.”

With that comment, you return to your favorite subject. You don’t really want to discuss political conspiracies about climate science, despite the fact that you revived the subject after it had become moribund.

No, you don’t want to talk about political conspiracies at all.

You want to talk about me.

Does the bible support your view that the earth is millions of years old?. Just curious.

Posted 398 days ago.

Tiredofit

Ok so you do agree the world is millions of years old. Posted before I saw your reply.

Posted 398 days ago.

Tiredofit

Harry I am trying to understand your estimate of how accurate science is with their theories. I can see where that gives you pause yet not enough to question the accuracy of this particular theory. Again I ask,, do you agree with me when I say the climate has been changing for millions of years?
