Global Warming and Evolution: Intimidation the New Step in the Scientific Method

I must at the outset admit that I haven’t delved into the data that I am told substantiates the view that the earth is steadily warming. That is one reason why I have not said anything about Global Warming. I shall say that here in Wisconsin we just came off of a mighty cold spell with snows as late as April, and last year was about the same. As Wisconsin is part of the globe, I feel I can anecdotally chime in that to this point I am skeptical about the Global Warming argument. Moreover, there clearly are several different parts of the question: even if we establish that the earth is warming, it doesn’t follow that humans are causing it, and even if it is warming, it doesn’t follow that a warming earth would be all that bad (did I mention the cold Wisconsin winters?).

Giving Skeptics Reason to be Skeptical: Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. New Super Trailer.

The latest trailer is awesome in my opinion: http://www.expelledthemovie.com/playground.php (Opens in New Window.) I have had on occasion the opportunity to challenge my skeptical atheistic secular humanistic ‘free thinking’ ‘bright‘ friends to put their alleged skeptical and free thinking methods to work that is skeptical about everything, and not just ‘religious’ issues. There are many […]
