Krymson Tyde: No reason to fret, Jesus will be here any day to take us all home.

Okay, not ALL of us.


I have to admit to having a dream sometimes where Jesus returns to bring the end times. He looks around at the poor, the hungry and the sick, and then at the gleaming churches of those who pray in his name and the politicians who praise him in every speech.

Then he sits down with a bunch of scientists at a local bar, orders a beer and says "OK- you're the smart ones. Explain to me WTF happened anyway? 'Cause frankly I'm pretty confused"

doglover: Who the uses the term "bellweather" in this day and age. I must've read 10,000 books in my day, and I've never come across it.


1) It's bellwether
2) Were they coloring books?

croesius: Jacobin: There's an ocean on an island? How did they do that?

jaytkay: They found an ocean on an island? Interesting.

How about an island on a lake on an island on a lake on an island?

Clemkadidlefark: I breathe out carbon dioxide. My trees and grass fields love it. They give me back oxygen.


I drink water. Obviously drowning is impossible and it's just made up by lifeguards trying to get money.

chuckufarlie: so, you are either too lazy or too stupid to do a simple google search? I have never met anybody that stupid/lazy.

nicksteel: They shout down anybody who dsagrees with them but when challenged, they don't know anything. It seems hypocritical to tell people that they are wrong when these two (an a few others) have no real idea why they are wrong. It is easy to answer a question by pointing somebody to a lengthy article. The hope that somewhere in that article is the answer. I merely ask them to provide those one or two sentences that actually ARE the answer. They can't.

Interesting, I knew the term when I was in high school. Maybe you should read better books?

Via Infinito: Nothing to see here folks. Climate change is a Devil-worshipping commie lie! Move along.


No no no... it is a global conspiracy designed to sell Al Gore's book. Unless... Al Gore IS a devil worshipping communist. Oh man, it goes deeper than I thought...

Tatterdemalian: If the climatologists were really worried about global warming, you'd think they'd support re-sequestering greenhouse gases. But instead, they insist that we can't seek any sort of engineered solution to global warming, because that wouldn't correct the disgusting producer/consumer behavior of our industrialized society. Better to let the human race die out than be tainted by the sins of biological imperatives, I guess.


Bullshiat. They don't say anything remotely like that.

I, as an atheist, wouldn't mind if Jesus stopped by to pick up all his believers. It's a nice fantasy, anyway.

Oh yes, you should worry as an American, a taxpayer, and a human being.

You see, the people who are in charge of this kind of thing - the investigation and mitigation of it - are the Representatives who make up the House Science Committee.

A committee made up of a large amount of people who believe that, among other things, Climate Science and Evolution are satanic, liberal lies that have no place in the United States Government.

Representative Paul Broun, stating that basic biological and general sciences are "lies from the pits of hell themselves"

Representative Todd Akin, who besides his "legtimate rape" comment, believes evolution and climate science are conspiracies.

There are other members of the science committee who believe, among other things - homeopathy is a legitimate scientific pursuit, evolution is a lie, religious freedom is not necessary in the United States, the abiotic oil/no peak oil theory, climate change is not occuring, and that basic biological sciences are hiding the truth about abortion.

America, this is what you voted for. You voted for stupidity and conspiracy theory in the highest echelons of our Government. You voted to be "tough on them liberals!" and elected people who have less knowledge about the topic they govern than a fifth grade student learns in Science class.

This, right here, is why our nation will become second world in terms of technology and science.

But yeah. You guys go with Christ.
