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.

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

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.

Never said that

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.

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.

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.

The question isn't valid because it's based on this false premise: "call(ing) ME a denier or an anti science propagandist..."

I called you nothing. Again, I attacked your position, not you.

Restate the question, removing the false premise, and I will be glad to answer it.

You wrote, "You see, it's not personal..." I agree it shouldn't be. So remove the false personal premise from the question to make it valid, and I will answer it.

So I am vain and irrational? Glad you are not calling names and making it personal. That would be beneath you.

Your sound mind cannot answer a simple question? Is it hypocritical or not?

correction on the last phrase of the last post. It should read like this:

where the Bible says we we “have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

harryanderson

In the first place, I didn’t call YOU anything. I went after your POSITION.

As far as “com(ing) down off my high horse,” no thanks.

Been there, done that.

I don’t care to go back down where peoples’ vain imaginations cause them to “resent being condescended to,” where people have irrational fears of worldwide political conspiracies, and where people can’t tell the difference between an attack on one’s position and an attack on one’s person.

I’d rather see you come up here on what you misguidedly call my “high horse,” where we “have not been given a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

Is it hypocritical Harry? Simple question. is it fair to call ME a denier or an anti science propagandist for my skepticism of man made global warming while you reject anthropology in general. Yes or no

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

Why don't you come down from the high horse for a while, stop being so self righteous for just a little bit. See the splinter in your own eye for once.

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

You base this all on a book written by men that is not supported by the brilliant scientists you seem to have such faith in.

Posted 427 days ago.

Tiredofit

You see its not personal nor does it have anything to do with your part or religion, its a simple fact. One cannot call people who are skeptical of a particular scientific theory, deniers or anti science propagandists, and then turn around and deny a huge portion of it himself without being a hypocrit. End of story.
