You are not familiar with my philosophy on the truth of the Bible .

We really need posters to understand logical fallacies. We can use Trump to improve our understanding of logic.

Calling global warming/cooling/the sky is falling science is disingenuous. It is a soft science at best.

Christ!! This is like talking to children, small obtuse ones. Climatology is a science, global CLIMATE CHANGE is something studied USING that science.

I have to agree with you about the evangelicals. However, these folks are running on a Christian fantasy and that is not exactly lying. A policy of specialization in education, and the Military Industry Order we have adopted, has resulted in mass ignorance and this has made Christianity a huge problem.

Science is what preserves our democracy and liberty but because of false beliefs, this is not working for us at this time. It is like what happened in China. When the communist took control of China they enforced a deep root policy that caused a famine and thousands of people starved to death. Farmers were ordered to plant their seeds very deep with the false belief that this would make stronger plants. As an experienced farmer would know, it meant the seeds didn't grow. Some of the things that Trump is doing will have negative effects such as the deep root policy in China, ignoring global warming is certainly one of them. But the problem is not equal to lying, because it is false beliefs that are preventing the masses from being well informed.

And folks who are completely ignorant of what you said believe they are smarter than the scientist. They strongly believe they are smarter and here is the problem...

This problem is so bad today because we have gone through a few decades of education for fast thinking and we neglected education for slow thinking. Actually, the 2012 Texas Rebulican agenda was to prevent education for slow thinking. Texas also was taken to court because of insisting science books also teach creationism. We are dealing with a very serious problem and it would be wonderful if people understood what public education has to do with the problem. I hope someone checks out the youtube and replies with some thoughts about how it applies to the ignorance in this thread.

What makes you an authority? What is your education background? What is your life experience that might give me a reason to believe that you know what you are talking about? Or make a better argument using facts that might persuade me to agree with you.

Just dissing the science is not a good logical argument and leaves me to believe you are a fast thinker and not a slow thinker. The link above explains why fast thinking is are not good thinking when it comes to things like global warming.

The Bible is very important to people who have not developed the Higher Order Thinking Skills. In 2012 this was called HOTS and the Texas Republican agenda was to keep education for the higher order thinking skills out of public schools. Basing one's understanding of reality on the bible is lazy thinking and the 1958 National Defense Education Act set us up for being fast thinkers and dropped education for being slow thinkers.

Now Christians have become the worst enemy of our democracy that depends on science and internalizing authority. The change in education has made people dependent on external authority and because it is a whole lot easier to understand life through the Bible, that is what millions of people do, rather than all the mental work it takes to understand life by gathering information and internalizing it to be one's own authority.

Do you see the problem? Because these folks are fast thinkers, which really isn't the thinking we must do to be authorities on anything but the Bible, they believe they know truth, when they really know very little of the real world. They rely on the Bible for authority, not knowledge, and they can only be authorities on what the Bible says and their own limited personal experience of life. Unfortunately, they have no idea how limited their knowledge of life is, because they are fast thinkers and know no better.

You know the saying, "The more we know, the more we know we don't know." Well, a Christian with God's truth is not bothered by their ignorance.
