Galileo, Johannes Kepler & many other scientists were & are strong & powerful believers in God.
Lots of AGW advocates believe in God.
I'm a Christian. But I don't believe in "god's message delivered by re-pubic-lick-uns".
Your life as a non-scientist & disbeliever in science has led you to an erroneous conclusion that science believers & God-believers can't be the same person.
Wrong again Swan Song , A true Christian would NEVER PUT SCIENCE BEFORE GOD !!!! So therefor we can all assume that most believers in science are non believers in God as he should be first and NOT YOUR SCIENCE ! And sorry not a Republican either INDEPENDANT ! As I have supported folks from each party over the years .

Easing your conscience while profiting from destruction is hardly 'CHRISTIAN'.

Undoubtedly for private property that only YOU and your cohorts can 'enjoy'. This is also typical of the false Christian that tend to join the right wing.

Your hypocrisy is too stupid. Christianity is about being good stewards of the land for EVERYBODY and you have to put yourself into it, not just throw some small change at it.

I seriously doubt if you will ever understand Christian values. You have what you CONSIDER to be Christianity and can ignore it most days.

As you are doing with your responsibility to preserve the climate and resources for future generations.

Claiming that science is 'Ungodly' is about as stupid as it gets. Nor is ignorance of the world a mark of worship.

God said for man to look after the land. He did not say that he must do it in IGNORANCE. To learn about how the world works and ensure that we do no harm is how true Christians approach it.

You fail both to care about learning about GODS work (the world, i.e. science) but about your fellow man who pays the price for your ignorance.

Your basic politics is of the right wing mainstream. Using GOD as a 'pretext' for your hypocrisy.

Point is that hypocrites are NOT who they 'say' they are. He is like a middle age's noble, having bought enough 'pardons' from a pardoner to last his entire weekend of sloth and debauchery..

If he was CHRISTIAN he would live for the VALUES of Christianity instead of using it as a 'pretext' for his sins.

These AGW forums have hosted posts on nearly every subject, from AGW advocates, AGW deniers, from racists, threateners, schooled & unskuled, intelligent people & stupid people.

No need to suppress one particular subject.

Perhaps there is a higher power "God" a concept worthy of a singular word.
Until proven wrong I will assume the label science is used in a general way to describe and understand the products and actions that are manifest from the beginning to this point in time.
Think of it as an exact language of understanding
of the mechanics of creation as mathematics more clearly defines relationships..
Where many sink into problems is confusing science with motive...
I will leave the motive of what is perceived as reality to others.
They may even wish to debate why the universe is the construct it is, from a physics standpoint, and no/not another...

Lynching County is wrong in his claim that "A true Christian would NEVER PUT SCIENCE BEFORE GOD". Science is not 'before' GOD. GOD made the world (so the bible says) but nothing says HOW HE DID IT. Learning about his works is an act of worship in my view, and probably most scientists. Lynching county is claiming that IGNORANCE is 'worship' which is silly and illustrates why HE is 'ignorant'.

Speaking of Mr. Gore, "24 Hours Of Reality" starts today at 1PM CDT. The theme this year is "The Cost of Carbon".

For those of us in the know, it may be a rehash of what we already know, but still, you may learn something if you tune in. I could say the same for the deniers here, but I would probably be overly optimistic in doing so.

For any fence-sitters, like the old-school Republican who just joined us, watch it from your fence and then make up your mind.

Wait for experimental tests before committing to climate change mitigation policy. Common sense, don't buy a pig in a poke.

Please define what you would consider a valid test...as a start.
please delete the quality "experimental."
You may also wish to define common sense ?
That which clearly resembles a pig in a poke may bracket the allowable responses to your posts...

The ancestors of modern carpenter bees may have vanished from Earth roughly 65 million years ago, around the same time the dinosaurs were wiped out, a new study finds.

The new research suggests the bee extinction lasted about 10 million years.

The findings should generate great interest in the field, said John Ascher, assistant professor in the department of biological sciences at the National University of Singapore and a research associate in the division of invertebrate zoology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. But Ascher, who wasn't involved in the current research, said studies that use molecular phylogenetics tend to be "speculative in their reliance on unrealistic and insufficiently justified evolutionary models."

"I would be much more enthusiastic about the discovery of a reliable fossil within any of the extant Xylocopinae tribes (the authors note that there are none)," Ascher told LiveScience in an email.

Still, the findings could shed some light on the declines that are being observed in current bee populations.
