An interesting discussion came up in a debate about global warming today.
There is a 97% consensus among climate scientists that global warming is man made right? So, that means, it must be true right? We have all the data
to back up this claim that mankind does cause global warming. Hold on though.
Remember, Christians, Jews and Muslims all have a consensus that God exists. You can say, that they have reached a 98% consensus as there are only 2%
atheists in the world. The highly religious will place miracles and other religious experiences or coincidences and say that this is proof about God's
existence but they can never be sure! There are countless philosophers and what one might call pseudo-scientific theories to "prove" that God exists.
But you still have to prove it!
Atheists always yell at the religious folks or even us agnostics that God is not real why believe in something stupid just because everyone else
believes in it, well how about global warming? Global Warming is the SAME exact thing. It's different than the flat earth and the gravity theories
because these were proven with scientific experimentation. Man made global warming has NOT been!
So I ask Atheists why do you believe in something so stupid that everyone believes in?
