Rants: The Fire This Time

As for the scoffers and the global warming deniers, JC had them pegged already, back in the first century:

As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of man. They ate, they drank, they married, they were given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was in the days of Lot -- they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built, but on the day when Lot went out from Sodom fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed them all -- so will it be on the day when the Son of man is revealed. ~ Luke 17: 26-30

Consider: fire, though it be low and slow, is fire just the same:

And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and upon the earth distress of nations in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. ~ Luke 21: 25-26

Will you ignore the abundant signs?

Okay, using Luke to put forth an argument in scientific debate?

I guess it's appropriate, as global warming is nothing more than a religion in the sociological and psychological sense of "shared community based on faith rather than empirical analysis."

Climatology is not as linear and simple (and simple-minded) as pundits of any side would have people believe.

This may be a lit invention
Professors muddled in their intent
To try to rope in followers
To float their malcontent
As for this reader,
I'm already spent

If Luke is correct, the scientific argument is irrelevant. The message of my post is not "lessen our dependence on foreign oil"; it is, rather, "get yourself right with God."

Ok, fair enough.

Bottom line...

Rob is nuts.


For Rob, ignorance is not simply bliss - it is something to be strived for!
