The current insanity over small numbers as compared to the whole is growing rapidly. For eample:

Swine Flu histeria....1154 deaths confirmed by the WHO....out of a population 6 billion people...........

en.rian.ru...

Global Warming (Fear of CO2)

The entire contribution of CO2 frm manmade sources is less than 0.003% of the world atmosphere...

www.orthodoxytoday.org...

www.geocraft.com...

Unemployment- only 9.4% of the american workforce is out of work....errr 90.6% are still working.

This is such insanity to fear such small relative numbers to cause such histeria. The news media have all gone insane............or have they.........

Lev 26:17


And I will set my face against you, and ye shall be slain before your enemies: they that hate you shall reign over you; and ye shall flee when none pursueth you.


"and you shall flee when none pursueth you" would seem to fit the current insanity.

I disagree. You're not interpretting the numbers correctly. 0.003% of all the gas in the atmosphere is ALOT of gas. 9.4% of Americans of working age is ALOT of people. The percentage is misleading you. There are over 200 million Americans of working age.

hahahaha, you have just proved my point, you can not see the whole for the small percentage you have been told you must fear.

How can 0.003% affect 99.997% of the whole to any negative extent?

If unemployment is said to be at its "minimum" at 5% or less, how can another 4.4% destroy the economy? Over 90% are still working. The actual change from "fully employed at 5%" to disaster is still only a change of 4.4%. So 4.4% of the whole is completely destroying in other 95%?

H1N1 deaths are currently 1154 out of 6 BILLION people on the planet.

Coronary heart disease 2,470,000 9.4 %
Diarrhoeal diseases 1,810,000 6.9 %
HIV/AIDS 1,510,000 5.7 %
Cerebrovascular diseases 1,480,000 5.6 %
Pulmonary disease 940,000 3.6 %

These numbers are in the multimillions yet the world is in a panic over 1154?

Fear is a choice. I don't think the intention of demonstrating scientific fact is to spread fear. But instead those skeptics choose to feel fear instead of exploring intelligence.
No one is panicking, no one is crying, no one is cowering over the information about H1N1 or global climate change. There are those who are intelligent who are preparing for the events. And there are those who are hiding from the future... in the depths of their own emotion.

You can't be serious...............



School officials fear H1N1 virus......


As schools and colleges prepare to welcome students back into session this month, they face an unpredictable yet unavoidable disruption -- pandemic flu.

The H1N1 virus has been circulating all summer, shutting down overnight camps and keeping doctors' offices busy. Now health officials are bracing for an even bigger spread of the novel virus as students of all ages congregate in the close quarters of buses, classrooms, dorms and cafeterias.

Why Liberals Fear Global Warming More Than Conservatives Do
By Dennis Prager

Observers of contemporary society will surely have noted that a liberal is far more likely to fear global warming than a conservative. Why is this?

After all, if the science is as conclusive as Al Gore, Time, Newsweek, The New York Times and virtually every other spokesman of the Left says it is, conservatives are just as likely to be scorched and drowned and otherwise done in by global warming as liberals will. So why aren't non-leftists nearly as exercised as leftists are? Do conservatives handle heat better? Are libertarians better swimmers? Do religious people love their children less?

And let us add one more insane fact........


What percentage of Americans actually pay their mortgage on time? This is not a question that gets asked a lot. For those lucky enough to catch the nightly news tonight, you caught them talking about backlash to the bailout bill passed this week. The most interested part of this whole talk though came right at the very end. Right around the 3:20 mark we find out that 92% of Americans pay their mortgages on time. This number seems incredibly high when all you hear about every night is the number of places falling into foreclosure. Check out the video below to see for yourself.

The "panic" over "bad morgages" had the world spending trillions to fix 8% of people who were "late".............
