How are people who deny global warming still taken seriously? I mean come on, really. How much proof and science do you need before all the nutjobs finally give in.
But what I really find interesting is that evangelical churches around the country are stepping up and telling everyone that we need to do something about this crisis. Sorry I cannot find the link to the PBS program that detailed this extensively, but I am still searching. Why is this? Because they actually sat down skimmed through the bible and found that there is actually nothing in the bible that says anything to the sort of, “Thou shalt not take care of the planet that gave you life!”
… Well maybe not (we all know devote Christians don’t read or care what is in the Bible, they just believe … just kidding), but some actually realized that you don’t have to give up all science and reason just because you choose to have faith. If any fundi’s are reading, stop for a minute and read carefully right here:
God built this planet so your species and many others have a place to live right? What gives you the right to trash it? Or better yet, why do you think God is ok with you trashing it? If God built it for you than this planet is still his right? Would you trash your mother’s home just because she let you live in it?
Hearing people give excuses to global warming reminds me of watching the Illinois State University students trash various parts of the campus. I still have to push in chairs for the College of Business students in the computer lab. It’s like they come to college expecting everyone to wipe their ass. Maybe that’s it, maybe the Evangelicals think God is going to wipe their ass for them, so they don’t need to save the planet…
That means that “An Inconvenient Truth” may be shown only with the written permission of a principal—and only when it is balanced by alternative views that are approved by both a principal and the superintendent of schools.
Hardison was pleased.
“I am happy they are giving the kids as much information as possible,” he said.
Is this dipshit on crack? WTF is he thinking? When you take away information from the kids how the hell are you giving them more.
“No you will not teach or show that propagandist Al Gore video to my child, blaming our nation — the greatest nation ever to exist on this planet — for global warming,” Hardiman wrote in an e-mail to the Federal Way School Board. The 43-year-old computer consultant is an evangelical Christian who says he believes that a warming planet is “one of the signs” of Jesus Christ’s imminent return for Judgment Day.”
What a genius this guy is! Yes, our destruction of a planet that is also causing global warming is in fact the coming of Jesus Christ. Someone who’s existence has yet to be proven. Just as Colbert once said, “We all know reality has a well known liberal bias…”
