Evidence Based Thinking!
There was a poll taken the other day that I read on huffington post regarding man's impact on climate. Almost 40% ignore any scientific discussion and believe 1)only God can effect climate 2)that current climate changes are just normal cyclical events 3)the science is still not definitive. They accept science when they watch tv, use the googly tubes, drive and fly, use their cell phones, and throw a ball into the air, but somehow, 98% of climate scientists are wrong. Now I don't have grand children, but I do believe that the risk that the planet will be virtually uninhabitable in 35 years is substantial, yet all these folks just want to bury their heads in the sand. The artic ice shelves are breaking off. Kansas and Texas have had three year droughts and causing grain and cattle prices to begin to escalate rapidly, and I see farmers and ranchers standing in churches praying for rain.
But the good news is that those fun folks in Kentucky are tax supporting the "ark encounter" that will display a lifesize (did God give them the dimensions?) ark that will include dinosaurs......as thomas dolby would say, "she blinded me with science!"
