I wonder if the same criteria applies to be able to spot a hidden "scientific" agenda, like global warming?
If so, then Al Gore has been thoroughly exposed, with his scam for carbon credits. What the heck, though, he needs the money to fill up his aviation-fuel guzzling jet, doesn't he, and pay his HUGE electric bill:


The Gores used about 191,000 kilowatt hours in 2006, according to bills reviewed by The Associated Press spanning the period from Feb. 3, 2006, to Jan. 5. That is far more than the typical Nashville household, which uses about 15,600 kilowatt-hours per year.

Hidden agendas are not the sole possession of those posing as religious, but are a part of any person trying to deceive. Just look at the hidden agendas of corporations, governments, environmental groups, and just about any place where two or more people gather to "Conspire".

Yes, which is exactly why we have things like the Scientific Method, the Socratic Method and peer review to minimise bias. Religion = rubbish.


You may be able to minimize bias with these methods, but it isn't eliminated. Why do you think Juries in high profile cases can't watch the news, or communicate with anyone outside? Humans are fallible and bias, we will never get away from that.

Calling religion rubbish is only your opinion. Your bias opinion.


I didn't say that bias could be eliminated but minimised. So you do thousands upon thousands of studies and bias becomes negligible. I call religion rubbish because those who devoutly follow it are more biased and irrational than anyone. There is no way to get anything objective out of a religious institution.

Yes, isn't it interesting that the author of this post is unwilling to speak about the meat of his topic and some how gets sucked into debating the WHATEVER adgenda he is pushing. Hold him under till he confesses!
