Physics and chemistry is not magic. It's not a matter of belief, mate. You may be used to mentally navigating by beliefs, but that's not what got us
to the moon, or created the micro-processor that allows you to access ats.
Absolutely NONE of the chemistry, medical, physics, technological, electronic, transportation, communications progress of our era
COULD OR WOULD have reached to the first micrometer of progress
first, the new and very uncertain [color=6699FF]BELIEF
that such progress COULD actually be achieved.
Your hostility to belief is just not even realistic or practical or historically true in the fields you use to illustrate your hostitlity.
Denial of the place of BELIEF in reality and in progress . . . does not remove BELIEF from such realities. It merely removes doubt that such
hostilitly is a ragingly willfully blind bias.
PS: I think it's more important to you to protect your beliefs than to protect the Earth. Sad but true.
HOGWASH. Your biases are screaming untruths, again.
1. my beliefs don't NEED protection. They're founded on solid bedrock and been through lots of long dark nights of the soul.
2. An inherent part of my beliefs are the God ordained protection of and wise stewardship of the earth He has thrown us into.
I've seen it thousands of times, in particular on American sites: a kind of stubbornly holding on to ignorance, come rain or shine.
Ahhhhh like the ignorance about the place of BELIEF in progress?
. . .
Or choose the way of untruth and disinformation.
According to . . . drum roll . . . the Marxist Main Stream Media; the globalist oligarchy; the tyrannical ruthless, genocidal puppet masters . . .
great purveyors of TRUTH, those. /sarc
The Bible does mention that the SUN will become "7 times" hotter, IIRC, during the Great Tribulation.
There's LOTS of factors that put 'greenhouse gasses' into a very very fractional role.
However, the genocidal globalists are quite happy for folks to be all up in arms over global warming--as though the human part of the equation would
make a decidedly significant difference. That part of their script helps them manage their horrors all the easier and more effectively. Besides, who
knows . . . conservative use of firewood just MIGHT allow a few more insects to live a few more hours or days than they otherwise wood have lived.
To use your spirit-lingo, isn't Satan on the side of the oil companies? Consider how many innocent people have been murdered in the pursuit of oil.
How many die everyday from carcinogenic particles from fossil energy?
Compare: How many will die building wind mills and solar panels?
Be careful you don't do Satan's bidding.
Certainly the genocidal globalist oligarchy has been doing satan's bidding a long time. And the treason of withholding clean energy technologies that
would afford essentially free clean energy will haunt them through their eons in hell.
Yeah, the oil companies have a LOT to answer for. And, they will reap what they have sown--every last official, board member, CEO etc.
Stanton Friedman has researched the issues sufficiently for him to take a reasoned stance on the topic. Given the typical thoroughness of his research
. . . and the methodical thoughtfulness and sharpness of his thinking, I have to respect his assertions to a significant degree.
Why he bothered with the topic, I don't know.
He does have a certain curmudgeonly aversion, hostility, even, to prissy pontificating on the part of the powers that be. I like that about him. And
he can be scathing when he catches them in stupid untruths. That may have fostered his venture into the topic.
