Re: Planetary Defense
I'm noting that you understand that humans know what to do and yet do not address it.

The humans aren't the problem. The problem is with the anti-humanist thoroughly unchristian Christians.

I quip to them that if the Far Right is correct, we will have to deal with a spiritual apocalypse and if the secular intellectuals are right, it will be global warming and possibly other apocalyptic (or at best) societally changing events.

And you thereby turn a solvable problem into a bullshit religious issue.

Re: Planetary Defense
First of all, you are stereotyping Christians. (SOME not ALL)

Yes, what I said does not apply to many liberal Christians. But the conservative Christians usually deny that the liberal Christians are actually Christian. So I exaggerated, but only a little.

Re: Planetary Defense
Which part was exaggerated?

Looking back at what I wrote, I don't think I did exaggerate. Phat took me as saying something about all Christians. But I carefully avoided doing that.

Here's a link to an Atlantic article that describes the corruption we see in evangelical Christianity: The Evangelical Church Is Breaking Apart

Re: The Standard Model
Some of my squeaks are bleeped out.

We can still read them, if we click "peek". And most evcforum participants know that.

Re: T-Mobile 5g Home Internet
I'm fortunate enough to have fiber. I'm currently at 200M (up and down). I can get 1G, but that would be paying for more than I will use.

I'm happy to hear that T-Mobile is working out. I have heard good reports on it.
