When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore.

Litesong, no one is knocking those who hold a spiritual belief. What we are knocking is holding that belief beyond being rational. Which means if something doesn't make sense or to make it sound rational we have to believe in a power beyond our understanding. Then don't knock those who question it, that is how science discovered the earth was not flat but the church at the time would lock you up for suggesting otherwise. That is blind faith, no one who is educated should have blind faith, question everything!
That is how science works and in the climate part of science 98% proof is enough to convince me that the 2%'ers are wrong.

You know I support your great & powerful stands against toxic topix AGW deniers. Don't expect any support from me in your brokenness of Spirit, that rejects the God who Galileo Galilei, & Johannes Kepler worshipped. It was their faith in God & His Mercy, that He & His creation were understandable by people's minds, at least in small measure, that led to their wondrous science discoveries & conclusions, & strengthened them to the end of their lives.
My display of the lack of science & mathematics education & science & mathematics degrees by toxic topix AGW deniers is constant. The reasons for a lack of science & mathematics education by toxic topix AGW deniers are many, only a few being religious.
Your reasons for your spiritual wandering, seem only straight-forward, & obvious, with reliance on a rhetorical question that isn't answered fittingly by atheist or saint.
Me...... I'll remain with my emphasis that toxic topix AGW deniers lack a fundamental education in science & mathematics by choice, even from their earliest years.
I am not familiar with any brokenness of spirit; my spirit is fine. I have a severe case of realism though.

My spiritual wandering ended many years ago when I realized that WE are responsible for this world, not a god.

In your spiritual wanderings, I find it surprising that you have chosen a transplanted Euro-God, instead of the One who resides in the mountains and trees of your native land.

To each his own, I suppose. As long as we continue to protest and fight the ignorance and corruption of these modern devils, our personal motivations don't matter.

gcaveman uses this forum on AGW to display his "no felt need of God" & pulpit preach without a sermon or a pulpit. Furthering his "surprise of God Believers", he unleashes more surprise(which is mis-interpretation), that My God is a euro-god, trying his best to blend euros with the God of the Universe. His inference is to my continuous linking of euros & transplanted euros to Native Tribal genocide, world-wide, & why would I dare to pick the euro-god. gcaveman works hard not to mention the Sacrificial Lamb, Christ, Emmanuel, God With Us.

Always kinda thought atheists to be smart. Glad to see they can mentally flop, too.

Not atheist: agnostic. I find no scientific, realistic, tangible, palpable proof of God.

There may be a Supreme Being. I have not been all the way around the Universe yet. But wherever this being resides, I am pretty sure He (or She, which is more likely, according to the Earthly model) is not Euro, Middle Eastern, American, or for that matter, even earthly.

You are certainly as welcome to your beliefs as I am to mine.

Change is the nature of life. We adapt. We should be concentrating our efforts on pragmatic solutions for the future, not trying to stem the flow of climate change and possibly making the situation worse for ourselves. It's inevitable, why attempt to fight against it.

The evidence is overwhelming, you just choose to "Deny" it's existence.
There is a clear "Consensus" among the experts about this.
"98%" agree.
Everything that has been "Predicted/Forecast/Proje cted/Suggested" has come true.
It is a "Fact" 'for all intent and purposes'.
You lack the "education" to be able to see it.
Your "political" perspective is influencing your thinking.
If we do not change our ways, repent and make sacrifices the consequences will "Likely" be terrible.
We are born with the evil within that is capable of destroying the world for we exhale over a ton each year.

And finally...
YOU ARE AN IDIOT simply because you disagree with the current orthodoxy.

OH WAIT, this thread is about the AGW.

Hummm... the reasoning for GOD and AGW appear to be the same.

OK. I'm still on topic cuz it works for both. Carry on.

Well Mississippi Perv; the simple fact that you needed to ask the question proves the point that:*'belief' in GOD and AGW are grounded in the same unproven and/or unprovable principles.

*both are religious dogma

So my mission, should I decide to accept it, is to convert you from GOD to AGW.

Man, I have my work cut out for me.

For one thing, I'm dealing with at least four different personalities here, and converting all four may be rather difficult. There's a sciencey one, and a Bible-thumper, and there's two that just seem to drift and curse. And all of them have had some rather serious failure of thought or other at one time or the other.

Well, non-believers have become Jews, married men have become monks, and a little Negro boy from Detroit grew up to be a rich white woman, so I guess you can be converted.

It's just a matter of changing allegiance from one mindless dogma to a dogma that is MINDFUL. Nothing to it! I did it years ago. Based on those same unproven and/or unprovable principles, which you have yet to refute.

My sermon follows....

Some deniers on here constantly amaze me, trying to tie climate change alarm as a religion, based on a belief without foundation. The same religious based paranoia that was around when science declared the earth was not the centre of the universe. The scientists then were called devil worshippers, very easy to see a parallel in thinking here.

Fact:

Remove 1 Itsy Bitsy CO2 molecule from every 10,000 air molecules and this debate would end. God you're such a bunch of gullible hillbillies. You all remind me of G. W. Bush... That's an insult for those who lack the mental acuity to discern the obvious.

Fact:

Just one less Potassium molecule in every 10,000 molecules of blood and the patient wouldn't be dead.

A doctor would need to know this.

An ignorant man would think the small number meant the effect would be insignificant.

You wouldn't listen to the ignorant man when your health was at stake (or, if you did, you'd be dead).

Don't listen to the ignorant man when the health of the planet is at stake.
