Not a climatologist. Your appeals to authority don't even appeal to the correct authorities.


Ivar Giaever (Norwegian: Giæver, IPA: [ˈiːvɑr ˈjeːvər]; born April 5, 1929) is a Norwegian-American physicist who shared the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1973 with Leo Esaki and Brian Josephson "for their discoveries regarding tunnelling phenomena in solids".[1]

...and


...finds that creationists and conspiracists think a lot alike.

When something occurs that's hard to explain, many people say that "everything happens for a reason" and that the event was "meant to be." T

he thought provides a purpose for what, in reality, was a random, accidental event.

This type of thinking, called teleological thinking, is what gives rise to creationism, which, in this case, refers to the belief that Earth was created by an all-powerful being less than 10,000 years ago. That same kind of reasoning also promotes a belief in conspiracy theories, a new study has found.

Making up motive/intent were there is none.

So if you're a skeptic, then you're a right-wing nationalist.


That is so dumb that my left eye started bleeding just because I read that.

Then you didn't read it so good.

Do you also believe that all Muslims are terrorists.

You can't use strawmen arguments anymore.

Straws are illegal.

It's not a strawman argument.

It's a comparison. To this statement:

So if you're a skeptic, then you're a right-wing nationalist.



Straws are illegal.
Not here. But one use plastic bags are.

I stand by what I said, if you want to counter using a strawman argument then we can talk about hammocks made from thin spaghetti if you'd prefer, because my point, my opinion stands.

No. If you disregard scientific evidence for political dogma then you are likely one.

Using the catch words like alarmist(like Ted Cruz did in a Senate discussion, you are trying use ridicule over reason.

That is not much different than a crowd at a Trump rally chanting 'Lock her up!'.

*sigh*

I've written this so much that I dread typing it again, but I will remain a skeptic, no matter what names I get called.

Nah. You do.

Don't even tell me you are arguing for the motion that being skeptical of climate science is white supremacy

You're not doing that are you?

You are correct.

But that's what DB is claiming the OP says.

So scientists are liars? And politicians like Cruz(who is sponsered by big oil interests) are telling us the truth?

Amazing how a trollish 1 liner can get so many stars.

I joined this site over a decade ago because it was a place that had intellectual discussions, but I am disheartened that mindless dribble can be so popular on here today.

The reality of human induced climate change IS A REALITY!

The only debate should be how to counter it. Unfortunately we live in a world where ignorance especially in terms of the band wagon effect rules while actual knowledge is dismissed.

Is there left wing nationalism or is that an attribute only of the "Right"?


Only the right. Studies suggest that right political views are linked with a disability to see the bigger picture. IN other words they cannot see the watch for the clogs.

My point is: We, as a collective, are complete A-Holes if We don't do Our very best to clean up the World in which We exist. Forget Your children and grandchildren, this is where YOU live.

Should people make $$$ on it? No, absolutely NOT. Provide for Your family? Sure.

I'd type more but there is some kind of food wrapper blowing on My front yard. I know I shouldn't really care as this has happened before but this is where I dwell...

Stay Hydrated... (but make sure it is water clean enough to drink because We have also done good at poisoning the water supply....

That article is so cute, in so many ways.


Teleology describes a way of thinking that rejects scientific reasoning but instead readily accepts that events occur because of the purpose they serve.



The researchers found no relationship between conspiracy or teleological bias and age, gender, religion or political orientation. But they did find a link with education level. "It is a common finding that the people who are less educated believe more in conspiracy theory," Wagner-Egger said.


Do you perhaps like the condemnation of people that don't believe in mainstream science? That people that don't follow the official lies and deception, like anthropogenric climate change, are somehow less educated or maybe even imbeciles for going against the mainstream scientific peer reviewed pharaohs whom we should worship as all knowing.

Ohhhhmmmmm, praise be Amen, king of the reptilian gods .... ohhhhmmmmm
