There are climate scientists all over the world who disagree with the atheist, liberal view of global warming, and have written articles and books about it.

Please present some of these.

Not climate scientists.

Also, I am a little suspicious about this. I can not find an original reference for this. Everything points back to the site you reference. That being said these people are not climate scientists.

http://www.americanthinker.com/...gainst_global_warming.html
Again not climate scientists.

Do you read things you post?
http://en.wikipedia.org/...g_Swindle#Reception_and_criticism

Care to try again?

Edited by Adminnemooseus, : Fixed first two links (originally in message 49). You need to copy the "peek" version of the links, not the message display form which includes "..." in the middle.

Re: another empty argument attempt to push religious views in education
Here is link showing the results of a survey taken to find out how scientifically literate tea party members can be.

And here is the good professors actual post, not cherry picked.
What the full post says
And him bemoaning how what he has written has become misconstrued and warped.
Second post

Guess it shows that Tea Party supporters don't understand science that well.

I have stated this before, but will reiterate again, you really should read these things you find through Google (I suggest DuckDuckGo, no tracking). Many things you use as a reference, like this, don't actually support what you claim. You should read both of the posts by Professor Kahane. If you understand them you wont think they are in any way supportive of your position.

At least he was honest enough to report his (surprising to him) findings.

Why wouldn't he? He was naive thinking that people like you would not distort the results. He must be a liberal, since he was honest.

Climate scientists aren't completely in charge of U.S. political decisions, and their opinions of what is bad or good for the U.S. is of minor importance.

You are amazing. Are you saying that political decisions should not be based on science.

Of course, if they didn't have information of the special interests that opposed them, I wouldn't think they'd have much credibility.

Wow! If you actually read this stuff and still think they support you, then your reading comprehension and/or basic science skills are very lacking.

Even when you are shown that you are misunderstanding something you still go with it. Cognitive dissonance at its finest.

Re: another empty argument attempt to push religious views in education
They always support what I claim, just because there is opposition to them doesn't make them invalid. The good professor probably got contacted by someone in control of his job, or his life, telling him to get busy and fix his mistake, if he knows what's good for him.

The scary thing is that you actual believe this.

You obviously know very little about the founders.

Re: Dredge Unplugged
Whatever. We have been waiting thousands of years for this "evidence". Woo has never been shown to be a better explanation than science. Trickle down economics is more likely to be proven real.

If your viewpoint has merits and facts to back it up why would you have to lie?

Science≠Truth.

Science does not care about truth. Science cares about where the data leads. Data changes therefore science changes with it.
