creation= making something out of nothing

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 25, 2009

Sure, maybe the scientific data behind the climate-change theory is all phony. But that doesn't mean we should question the theory, the New York Times assures us. 

The evidence pointing to a growing human contribution to global warming is so widely accepted that the hacked material is unlikely to erode the overall argument.

The theory of man-made climate change is widely accepted because scientists have offered evidence to support that theory, and the media have conveyed that evidence to the general public. In other words, the American people think that way because the media-- with the New York Times in the vanguard-- instructed them to think that way. 

Now the evidence that the media fed us has been called into question. But the Times sees no reason to revisit the question, because public opinion has already been formed. 

On the sixth day the New York Times created public opinion. And the Times saw that public opinion was good. On the seventh day the Times rested.

    You know, the problem is we put "scientists" up on this public opinion pedastal forgeting they are women and men ... just like the rest of us. The sad thing is they know that most folks do not have the gift and depth of understanding of the scientists. So they use us and ridicule us..betraying their committment to the rest of us trusting their gift. Thank God for the scientists and engineers truly standing up for the Truth and serving God and man.

    1) the earth is warming (not certain) 2) humans have contributed to the warming (still not certain) 3) a warming earth is bad (much evidence to the contrary, circa 9-14 centuries AD) 4) humans can reverse the trend (not certain and highly unlikely). Those are the facts.

    The Times lives by the old maxim, Never let the data stand in the way of a good theory.
