148. Well,
"...intellectually honest... He can spot a flaw in an argument at 50 paces..."?

So he goes from this...

"A Cool $10K on Global Warming

This story reinforces my belief that although the earth is certainly warming, the cause of the warming is not certain, nor is the conclusion that some global pact can stop it. I find it interesting that a leading global climate change expert would not give a skeptic 50:1 odds that the earth would cool. If he is so certain about global warming, why not? At least there is now real money on the line between scientists with competing theories."

To this:

"Revelation Upon Us?

Tens of thousands dead from an earthquake in Iran. Tens of thousands more dead from a heat wave in Europe. Hundreds of thousands dead from a tsunami in Asia. 90,000 square miles ravaged by a hurricane. What do they have in common? All very recent natural disasters of "Biblical proportion."

Now come doomsday predictions from the World Health Organization of a potential plague or pestilence of Biblical proportion - the Avian Bird Flu (ABF).

Keep your eye on FluWiki for details on National ABF Awareness Week sometime in October.

A non-Christian dentist friend of mine told me not to worry about global pandemics. With a heavy dose of snark, he exhorted me to "Trust in the Lord." Well, duh... But just as I trust in the Lord for the safety of my family, I still lock the door.

I have to wonder...Is Revelation upon us?"

And here I thought science teaches us that fiercer hurricanes are a result of increasingly warming waters.

It just goes on and on. He states that he's proud of "Mr. President" in regard to his very late and worthless "taking of responsibility". We know about this brand of intellectual honesty. It brings us Intelligent design advocates and science deniers who will nevertheless creatively manipulate any fact to suit their needs.

So we disagree here.
