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.

So next time you create a topic calling we skeptics Anti science, remember your own rejection of scientific consensus.

If I am anti science so are you and THAT has been my point all along.

Without being called anti science

Is it important where my beliefs come from or can you admit that my doubting of science is no more conspiracy related than yours. My doubts are just as relevant as yours and I have the same right to doubt as you.

“Explain why you reject science when it does not fit your preconceptions.”

It’s not my preconceptions. It’s what the Bible says.

I repeat. I believe the Bible over scientists.

Any preconceptions I may have come later. And believing worldwide conspiracy theories comes later still. That’s the so-called corner into which I’ve backed myself.

Correction time. I wrote, "Would you care to that with us?"

It should read, "Would you care to share that with us?"

“You deny science by your own admission its faith, if I deny science, its conspiracy and propaganda.” (sic)

For the first part of that, my faith. Yes, my faith in the Bible does cause me to reject science that contradicts the Bible, or, to state my position more accurately, to consider such scientific knowledge incomplete.

Now for the second part, or you rejecting science. Let’s assume you’re like me, and you have a faith or system of beliefs that causes you to reject the science of climate change. Would you care to that with us?

After all, I have gladly and repeatedly stated where my beliefs come from. What is the source of your belief?

If your wondering what that is right behind you, it is the corner you have backed yourself into.

You deny science by your own admission its faith, if I deny science, its conspiracy and propaganda. Why is my mind not able to discern what I feel is true an a lie just like you? Do you think you are somehow better suited to analyze science than I?

Despite all the research, fossils, carbon dating etc. Science just blew it. You reject it all?

So science is wrong, is that it.

I don't feel there's a conspiracy against people like me. If I such a crazy thought tried to enter my mind, I'd remind myself what God says: "No weapon formed against you shall prosper."

Why would scientists produce phoney research to deny Gods role in creating the universe and man. Explain why you reject science when it does not fit your preconceptions

Tiredofit

So the bible tells you that scientists are wrong about the origin of man. Why the conspiracy amongst scientists to propagate the evolution theory against people like you?

Are you saying you don't think there is a scientific hoax involving many scientists conspiring together? I'll admit that my memory may faulty. Please clarify your position.

“Do tell Harry how only YOU can tell which science is good and which is faulty.”

I’ve made it clear. The Bible tells me what science is good and what science is faulty.

Later.

Tiredofit

Never said that

Tiredofit

My question is not faulty, nice try. Take a look at the title of this thread. I would assume I am part of that campaign as I do pontificate on the subject often. You imply that skepticism about Global Warming is anti science.

Posted 448 days ago.

harryanderson

Your idea that thousands of scientists are conspiring against people like you is vain (in the sense of unproductive) and irrational.

I gotta go now. We'll continue later if you like.

Posted 448 days ago.

Tiredofit

Why do you reject science Harry. Is it a conspiracy that science rejects your creation theory? How do you explain the scientific proof that you are wrong in your beliefs? Are scientists just making up all the fossil data and carbon dating? Why would the conspire to hide the truth on creation? Or are they just wrong? Do tell Harry how only YOU can tell which science is good and which is faulty.
