The Truth About Global Warming & Climate Change

Updated on April 10, 2019

James A. Watkins is an entrepreneur, musician, and a writer with three non-fiction books and hundreds of magazine articles read by millions.

Global Warming

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes says the world will end in 12 years if we do not address Climate Change/Global Warming with her Green New Deal. This has been roundly debunked even by leftist climate change promoting scientists.

Other Leftists/Globalists have suggested anyone who disagrees with the Global Warming/Climate Change Agenda should be arrested, or at least censored.

The average temperature on Earth is currently 61 degrees. A Swedish scientific study has found that the planet was about eight degrees warmer in ancient Roman times, and again in the Middle Ages than it is today. This confounds the propaganda that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming. Scientific research supports the view that there is nothing unusual, unnatural or unprecedented about earth's current level of warmth.

NOAA released studies recently proving that there has actually been no global warming for at least 19 years. However, there has been severe global warming on Mars and Venus. Do you think man caused that?

NASA suggests global cooling, not global warming, is on the way. In the last two years, global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. NASA scientists say, "Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows. We fear that sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age."

I have Found the Secret Source of Global Warming
I have Found the Secret Source of Global Warming

Even if it was True that the Planet is Warming Can Americans Stop it?

Even if it were true that global warming is about to cause a great catastrophe, listen to the blunt truths John Kerry has acknowledged:

"The fact is that even if every American biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what — that still wouldn't be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.

"If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions — remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions — it wouldn't be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world's carbon pollution comes from the developing world."

Globalists Are Behind It

The Club of Rome, a think tank for Globalists with close ties to the Climate Change Agenda, stated on page 75 of its publication ‘The First Global Revolution,' way back in 1990:

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself." The passage appears under the subtitle, ‘The Common Enemy Of Humanity Is Man.'

Bill Nye the Science Guy – who is not a scientist but a comedian playing a scientist – produced a video that is widely used by public school teachers to indoctrinate the young—to scare them actually—to believe man is killing the planet and we've got to stop him now.

According to Nye—whom teachers tell children is the authority on all things scientific—flooding, thunderstorms, fires, tornadoes, blizzards, and even terrorism are caused by global warming. If it is dry, it is global warming. If it is wet, it is global warming. If it is hot, it is global warming. If it is cold, it is global warming. What this is is the use of science—phony science at that—as a political tool to push a particular agenda: Globalism — a New World Order.

Was Al Gore Right?

Making dire predictions is easy. Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth and the 2008 ABC special Earth 2100 made some prognostications we ought to revisit. By this year, sea levels were supposed to have risen by 20 feet. LOL. The ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland should be gone. Greenland is the same, Antarctica has gained ice. Sea levels have been slowly rising ever since man has measured sea levels.

Gore said hurricanes like Katrina would be commonplace by now. The opposite happened. From the day Gore made his prediction, 12 years went by with no major hurricanes hitting the United States. Tornadoes were supposed to become daily occurrences, but there are fewer of them now. Polar Bears are supposed to be extinct, but there are more today than when Al Gore was born. The Arctic was going to be completely melted by now, but it has gained more ice.

New York City should be underwater by now, but there it is. Gasoline is supposed to be $9 a gallon and milk $13 a gallon. Shorelines were supposed to have moved way inland, wiping out ports and coastal cities all across America. We were going to be plagued by pestilence and disease. Has it happened?

Don't Do What I Do; Do What I Command You To Do

The fact is Al Gore not long ago bought a mansion on the same beach he claimed was about to disappear, an odd investment if he believes what he says. An odd place to live if he believes it is about to be swept away.

Why do leftists congregate on the coasts when according to global warming the coasts will soon be under water? Why aren't they selling before property values plummet or before the property disappears altogether? Why aren't they moving inland to escape the apocalypse? Because they know Climate Change is bunk.

Al Gore and his fellow hypocrite Hollywood stars leave gigantic carbon footprints with their massive multiple mansions and private jets while they lecture us on all we should do without, such as basic transportation and heat.

Just one of Gore's mansions burns 21 times the fossil fuels of the average home. In one month, his Nashville residence used as much energy as I do in three years. Al Gore uses as much electricity as six families use per year just to heat his swimming pool.

Falsified Data

There is no data proving that global warming is taking place and no evidence that humankind is changing the temperature of Earth. There is hard evidence suggesting that changes in climate are determined by the sun—you know, that massive ball of heat and radiation at the center of our solar system the size of 1.3 million Earths.

In fact, the Left, with its globalist agenda, has been falsifying evidence to pull off a gigantic global warming hoax. A brand new peer-reviewed bombshell study concludes that three key global temperature data sets used in recent climate change models have been ‘adjusted'—that's falsified to folks like us—in such a way as to not be ‘a valid representation of reality.'

The study, entitled ‘On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data & The Validity of EPA's CO2 Endangerment Finding,' states:

"The EPA's conclusions based off of all three GAST data sets were ‘invalidated.' Nearly all of the warming shown in the data sets are accounted for by the ‘adjustments' made by scientists to past temperatures. The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.

"In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever — despite current claims of record-setting warming."

Obama Said 99.5% or 97% of Scientists Agree about Global Warming: But was that True?

Obama claimed that 99.5% of scientists and experts believe human beings cause climate change. There is no study claiming that 99.5% of scientists and experts agree with the climate change thesis, and even the - widely quoted in the media - study claiming a 97% consensus of scientists is total bunk.

Investigative journalists at Popular Technology reported that the '97% Study' falsely classified scientists' papers as supporting the global warming hypothesis - according to the scientists who published the papers. A more extensive examination by the New American reported that out of the nearly 12,000 scientific papers evaluated, only 65 endorsed the alarmist position. That is less than 0.97%.

According to the American Thinker: "The famous statement of ‘97% of climate scientists agree that man's activities cause warming' is so fatuous and misleading as to be without value.

"It's the classic example of a popular, neat-sounding cliché being repeated often enough that it's accepted as ‘true,' regardless of the actual facts.

"When one drills down deep into the study that produced the 97% figure, it turns out that it's not 97% of 12,000 climate scientists as popularly reported, but instead 77 of 79 self-identified climate scientists who had already taken a position in favor of human-caused warming and had also published more than 50% of their peer-reviewed papers. That's where the 97% comes from -- 77 out of 79, not 97% of 12,000!"

Maybe the Sun Affects our Climate

"Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organizational Studies.

"By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

"The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists.

"Two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims." ~ FORBES

Carbon Dioxide: The New Boogeyman

Carbon Dioxide has become the Boogeyman for the Left. However, is it a bad thing? Is it even a pollutant? Isn't it non-toxic?

Plants cannot live and flourish without carbon dioxide. I breathe it all the time with no ill effects. People with greenhouses pump it into their nurseries, tripling the amount of it so that their plants will grow stronger and healthier.

The current level of CO2 is 95% lower than at earlier times in our planet's history. United Nations climate scientists say even higher levels of CO2 would be better for us, "beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally."

Who is Polluting the Planet?

The Left loves to paint America as the culprit behind global pollution. However, is it true? No. According to the World Health Organization, the United States is among the cleanest countries in the world. Our air is "significantly cleaner in fact than the air in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the UK, Japan, Austria, and France."

America's air is much less polluted "than that of any other country in the G7, except Canada with its scant population."

America has more cities than any other nation among the least polluted in the world. The most polluted cities are in India, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and Pakistan. Sixty percent of cities in Europe fail to meet air pollution standards, three times the percentage in America.

The United States gave $1 Billion to the Global Green Climate Fund, but the world's top polluters gave nothing. China and India are the world's worst polluters by far, with China accounting for 28% of the world's pollution all by itself. As noted by the Heritage Foundation:

"For every ton of reduced pollution the United States emits, China and India produce almost ten more tons. This means it doesn't really matter how much America reduces its greenhouse gases because China and India cancel out any and all progress we make.

"Those who think they are helping save the planet by purchasing an electric car or putting a solar panel on their roof, or trying to shut down coal production in the United States are barking up the wrong tree. If we want to stop greenhouse gases, there is no way to make progress without China and India on board—which they clearly are not."

President Trump Leads the Way to a Cleaner Earth

Since the Election of President Trump, America has led the world in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Without a carbon tax, without cap and trade, without signing the Kyoto Treaty, and after pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, America reduced emissions more than any country in the world, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy. Meanwhile, the countries that signed the Paris Agreement have broken all their promises.

Democrats wailed that President Trump was "going kill the planet," but emissions have decreased under his administration. However, the European Union has significantly increased emissions of carbon dioxide since Trump won the election.

Paris Accord Flop
Paris Accord Flop

President Trump Pulled Out of the Paris Climate Accord

Thank God that President Trump got us out of the Paris Agreement.

American taxpayers would have been on the hook for $1 Trillion per year. The biggest polluters on the planet would have paid zero. Our natural gas production and manufacturing would have been cut 20-25%, along with a 70% cut in the production of clean coal, iron ore, and steel.

The price of everything would have gone up, especially energy. Millions of jobs would have been lost. It was a horrible deal that only could be liked by those who hate America and all it stands for.

The Paris Accord was a deal not to save the environment but to make the United States the piggy bank of the world. We got nothing from it. Wouldn't you rather have us keep our jobs, low energy costs and figure out a way to increase making clean coal like we've been doing?

Meanwhile, the biggest polluter, China, didn't have to cut emissions until the year 2030 and can produce as many coal plants as they want. The next biggest polluter is India, and they only agreed to that treaty because they are getting hundreds of billions of dollars over the next few years to be in the deal.

We have some of the cleanest air and water in the world, some of the highest standards, and we have to dish out Trillions to other countries while at the same time losing millions of our own jobs and prices skyrocketing here? Oh, by the way, this deal, if followed by every country precisely as written, would drop the temperature 2/10ths of one-degree Celsius by the year 2100. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?

      So now we have reality "The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by forty men over a time span of 1,500 years." - The Bible was written by humans, men specifically. It was NOT written by God.

      Then you say "The writers wrote what they were told to write by the Creator of all things. " - AND of course that is the problem

      You have the men, men who want to give some credence to their words, SAYING they were told what to write by God (or one of the angels, depending on the book).

      WHY do you believe they are telling you the truth when you think many 100s of expert climate scientists are lying to you? The Bible tells you how to live your life and who you must follow. The scientists are simply telling you that you need to do something to SAVE THE LIVES OF YOUR PROGENY (or, if you are young enough, your own life).

      Why must you keep posting FALSE and MISLEADING statements James - in this case misleading "So what is the goal of environmental policy? "We redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy," said Edenhofer."

      This DEBUNKS your claim and puts into its proper context for those open-minded readers of this Hub

      https://www.desmogblog.com/2017/11/07/how-climate-...

      "Now who do you suppose that $5 trillion dollars is for? The majority of it will be distributed by some entity somewhere, which you can bet will be all leftists, probably including Obama and Gore." - LOL.

      Think about it James, who really stands the most to benefit once the reality of global warming damage sinks in and people start trying to reverse the damage you rightists have caused? Why it is Big Corporations run by rightists. While paying their workers crap, while the execs take all of the money for themselves and shareholders, they will be rebuilding and repairing the damage YOU say won't happen. THAT is where the money will go.

      Leslie McCowen ~ You asked a very good question: “Do you believe God is love?” Yes! God demonstrates His love by not striking down those who mock Him on the spot, as He well could.

      Now I see some people erroneously claim, “God is love, period.”

      No. There are 1,050 commands in the New Testament, so it is not ALL about being non-judgmental. It is not true that God is nothing but love and expects nothing from us morally. Jesus sternly warned against those who know better leading the innocent and the ignorant into wickedness. ‘

      Keep my Commandments’ is written 359 times in the Bible. These commands cover every phase of your relationship with God and your fellow man.

      The word ‘if’ appears 1,522 times in the Bible; always to promise what will happen in your future if you serve God; and what will happen if you serve yourself—which is serving the world or Satan.

      Will Starr ~ Thank you for your learned and wise comments. I totally agree with everything you said. I especially think it important to hammer this home: “The words of former United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer:

      "One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole," said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

      So what is the goal of environmental policy? "We redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy," said Edenhofer.

      And you were spot on with this: “The notion that science is infallible is both silly and humorous. Science is a long series of errors, mistakes, and misunderstandings. Time and again, scientists have made claims that have been proved dead wrong.”

      You ask who is behind this conspiracy? I recently wrote a Hub better suited for this discussion: https://hubpages.com/politics/The-Russian-Collusio...

      It also addresses your claim about Russians influencing the election through social media.

      It is shameful for you to call President Trump a ‘racist.’ He is not and there is no evidence that he is. Only the fanciful imaginings of those struck with Trump Derangement Syndrome. Disgusting. He has done more for women, blacks, and Latinos than any president in history.

      Randy Godwin ~ The Bible is a collection of 66 books written by forty men over a time span of 1,500 years. The writers wrote what they were told to write by the Creator of all things. Therefore, the whole Bible is really one book by one Author—God Himself. The Bible is both fully human and fully divine, as is Jesus.

      The first 39 books—the Old Testament—were originally published in Hebrew and written over a period of one thousand years, 1400-400 BC. The last 27 books were written in Greek and comprise the New Testament, all penned in AD 45-90, with eight contributors. Moses is the chief writer of the Old Testament; Paul of the New Testament. God chose to communicate with man in those particular languages at those particular times—Hebrew and Greek.

      In the Bible, we meet God. Without a doubt, He is presented to us as a living Person, who speaks and acts. He also despises people that worship men or demons dressed up as phony gods. God has always been. There has never been a time when He was not. He lives outside of time, which was created for us. God is transcendent. That means He is beyond and above all He has made, which is everything except Himself. God is independent of this universe, but all of it is dependent upon Him. We should worship Him, for He is worthy of our adoration.

      Ps Your crack about the KJV is dead wrong. The KJV is merely a translation, not a rewrite. The Bible has been translated into 5500 languages, far more than any other book. That does not mean its message has been changed. It hasn’t. God created all that is, created all life, created man as the crown of His Creation. Man rebelled against God. God gave man a path to reconciliation with Him. A free gift for the taking. Or the refusing. Free Will and Faith being the keys.

      Brad Masters ~ I appreciate your stunning observations. Obama and his henchmen are guilty of crimes against the American people and against all humanity, liars and lawbreakers, enemies within. At this very minute, they are trying to overthrow the president and our government, working against the peaceful transfer of power.

      At every turn President Obama and his minions insulted us, lied to us, manipulated us and undermined us, working against our best interests. They took radical environmentalism to toxic heights, turning loose a punishing bureaucracy, churning out ridiculous regulations lethal to a once great economy. They ran up insurmountable debt, purposefully pouring sand in the gas tank. They squandered our resources, gorging themselves, insatiably pursuing their appetites and utopian fantasies, laughing at us as they picked our pockets. Adding $9 trillion in debt, they chained our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren to the burden of crushing debt that threatens the entire world economy.

      They instigated rancor, encouraged suspicion and created a thousand points of conflict, working to jackhammer the foundations of peace and unity, all with the help of a compliant media. They presided over and encouraged huge increases in violent crime, injecting demoralization at every opportunity. They started a race war that may never end, calling open season on police officers and turning the Department of Justice into a political arm of the Democrat Party. They attacked and shredded our Constitution whenever possible, willing to destroy liberty in the name of a new world order. They allowed and even encouraged a silent invasion of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants, with huge numbers of criminals and terrorists hidden.

      They gave comfort to our enemies and terrorized our friends. They allowed, even promoted, the proliferation of terrorism, war and nuclear weapons, calling themselves peacemakers. The world is aflame with no end in sight. They insulted and assaulted our military and law enforcement people: reprobates harassing the honorable. They funded the murder of babies in the womb and almost destroyed the greatest health care system in the world. And they engaged every form of lawlessness imaginable. Thank God the nightmare is over and our country survived the insanity that was Obama.

      Scott Belford ~ Your Gilgamesh story is all washed up. Now, if the Great Flood happened it makes sense that cultures around the world have oral or written stories about it. There are thousands of such flood legends all around the world. Even the Australian Aborigines have legends of a massive flood, as do people living in the deep jungles near the Amazon River in South America.

      Enemies of biblical Christianity assert that the biblical account borrowed from the Gilgamesh epic. The whole Gilgamesh-derivation theory is based on the discredited Documentary Hypothesis. The Eurocentric inventors of the Documentary Hypothesis, such as Julius Wellhausen, thought that writing hadn’t been invented by Moses’ time. But many archaeological discoveries of ancient writing show that this is ludicrous.

      Scott Belford ~ You claim that when you asked your ‘church,’ “Why can't even the Christians agree among themselves as to what/who God is?" They didn't answer.” Another fallacy. All Christian churches believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen.

      We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him, all things were made. For us and our salvation, he came down from Heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake, he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.

      We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

      Note: The word ‘catholic’ with a lower case 'c' does not mean the Roman Catholic Church, but the universal Christian Church as a whole, the entire Body of Christ—all Christians on earth and in heaven.

      Scott Belford ~ I find it quite interesting that you would claim, “I think about Trump a lot because he is destroying the country I served for most of my life.” President Trump has created an economic miracle and has done a great job. He has done nothing to hurt America. You know full well he loves America and his supporters love America and the Left despises America.

      You often hear Democrats describe America as racist, sexist, homophobic, imperialist, unfair, unjust, xenophobic, Islamophobic, and oppressive. Democrats routinely describe America as a nation built by evil white men, a cancer on the human race, who stole all the land from Indians, built the country on genocide, and created its wealth on the backs of slaves. To Democrats, America is now the world’s leading terrorist, the biggest problem in the world, a country full of hatred, full of Nazis, full of war mongers, full of racists. To Democrats America is systematically racist, racism is in our “national DNA,” and our police and justice system are racist. That is not how one talks about a place they love. They hate America. All they love about America is its wealth, which they fully intend to plunder.

      The Left has a long, ugly history of hatred; being venomously Anti-Western Civilization, Anti-America, Anti-Freedom, Anti-Constitution, Anti-Founding Fathers, Anti-Middle Class, Anti-Democracy, Anti-Truth, Anti-Normal, Anti-Reality, Anti-Achievement, Anti-Marriage, Anti-Family, Anti-Parenthood, Anti-Morality, Anti-God, Anti-Bible, AntiChrist. The spirit that animates this movement is Evil Incarnate.

      Scott Belford ~ I think scientists are being paid to create and perpetuate the global warming hoax. Worldwide the numbers are gargantuan. Five years ago, a leftist group called the Climate Policy Initiative issued a study that found that “Global investment in climate change” reached $359 billion that year. Then to give you a sense of how money-hungry these planet-saviors are, the CPI moaned that this spending “falls far short of what’s needed” a number estimated at $5 trillion.

      Now who do you suppose that $5 trillion dollars is for? The majority of it will be distributed by some entity somewhere, which you can bet will be all leftists, probably including Obama and Gore. Naturally, the leftists involved will need a handling fee. 10% doesn’t sound like asking for too much. $500 billion is quite an incentive.

      Your Yale survey for which you kindly provided a link is quite interesting. Note it is a funded by a hard left anti-fossil fuel organization. You don’t seem to understand that groups like that only pay for results that match their presuppositions. People conducting polls or producing research full well know this, of course.

      There are other polls that show different results, especially about whether Climate Change is man-made. I saw a survey this morning that showed only 27% of Americans believe in MAN-MADE climate change. And remember this: 90% of Democrats do. Why wouldn’t they? All they know is what they are spoon fed by CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times and Washington Post.

      Speaking of surveys, one that just came out asked Americans what issue concerns them most and Illegal Immigration was the hands down winner with Climate Change polling 3%, way down the list of issues.

      Every year the UN does a survey that polls people’s greatest concerns across the world. It’s significant because the responses run into the millions and canvas the views of people from all countries, rich and poor. The 2018 results UN Poll Shows Climate Change Is the Lowest of All Global Concerns! More than three times as many people care about education, and well over twice as many want better healthcare, job opportunities, and honest government than want “action taken on climate change”.

      “Action on climate change”, in other words, is the decadent preoccupation of spoilt Westerners who have nothing serious to worry about because they have all the basics – education, healthcare, jobs, political freedoms, phone and internet access – more or less covered. And it isn’t, as you would claim, that we ‘don’t understand science.’ Pew Survey: ‘Climate skeptics are generally just as science iiterate as everyone else.’

      I knew that. The Gilgamesh story was based on the flooding of the Black Sea around 8400 BCE after the end of the last mini-ice age. The Black Sea, much smaller then, was well populated around the its shore. The rapid rise in level caused a mass migration to the South, through Turkey, to the West into the Danube area, and Northwest to Europe (roughly, it has been a while since I read the book).

      It was this flood and the migration South that led to the Gilgamesh story which the Christians then adopted for their own Noah story.

      I thought a true believer would answer my assertion, but instead an anonymous person who has never researched its own religion to see if what it was taught was true. I don't know, but it seems as if one is wagering one's soul on a belief they'd check into it fully instead of listening to other's opinions.

      Then again, most Xtians are told NOT to question the teachings in the old tome for the very reasons I've listed previously. What I stated is not left wing propaganda, but simply the results of much research.

      Most Xtians don't know the story of Noah's Ark was stolen from the Epic of Gilgamesh.

      You post a lot of nonsense, T, it is hard to follow. So you are claiming this so-called "link" answers the question of who wrote the Bible? Who wrote the content in the link, a man or God? If a man, why should he be believed?

      Hopefully it is not a consensus of Christians who claim, without proof, their version of God is the right version. Brad tells us a consensus of experts is useless so why would I believe that a consensus of non-experts be any more useful?

      And while I am at it, I asked in my Methodist Sunday School class back when I was 10, "which Christian sub-set has the right version of God? Why can't even the Christians agree among themselves as to what/who God is?" They didn't answer.

      I read the Bible cover-to-cover back then (and twice more since) looking for answers and only came away with more questions.

      I went on my own search and finally settled on a version of Pantheism. Now, I don't have to twist myself into logical knots trying to explain the internal contradictions that is a singular characteristic of Christianity (and Judaism and Islam, which to me are just different sides of the same coin)

      BTW, your "joke" comment proves you are not a Christian. No TRUE Christian would make such a comment.

      How do you know the Bible is God's word? That is the question. What is your authority besides a self-fulling prophecy? It does something like this:

      Who wrote the Bible? God wrote it. Who says so? God says so. Where does he say it? In the Bible, dummy!

      Well, that type of illogic may work for you, but it certainly doesn't for me.

      Leslie, why do you ask?

      To begin with you don’t believe god exists so why would you ask anybody if a thing doesn’t exist anything about it?

      And then I suppose whatever answer I were to give you you’d attempt to use God’s Word, the word of a God you say doesn’t exist, to prove me wrong.

      You have nothing, no foundation upon which to even ask that question or debate the answer because you believe God, and therefore His Word, are a fiction.

      And then there is Randy, another atheist who doesn’t ever search for the truth but forms an opinion and then looks for left wing talking points to support his whimsy. Randy has never researched Christianity objectively or he would understand this

      Perhaps a true believer can tell us who wrote the Bible? I doubt it as no one else can. The authors are anonymous and always have been. Even the NT prefaces the first books with "The Gospel according to." Meaning the words are actually hearsay.

      The compilation of the present Bible was accomplished under the notoriously bisexual King James by mortal men who picked which books would, or would not, be allowed into the old novel.

      But some ignorant folks think God wrote it himself. Got another version anyone?

      Brad, he’s out of talking points, used them all. All he’s left with is attack the messenger. Same thing he does with the Bible’s message which being a heathen he can’t stand though he knows it is the truth! So what does he do, ignore the message of the Bible, God’s word, that he is a sinner and needs a savior and he attacks the messenger, God by claiming it’s not God’s word but written only by men, uninspired. When all he’s got is attack the messenger you know he has lost the debate.

      Can any of you succinctly, and tersely make an intelligent fact filled declaration of your point(s)?

      I have made mine over and over and you couldn't argue against it.

      1. The Paris Accord is a consensus of nations that agree or agreeing about climate change. A consensus as I have proven is not a fact, and it isn't a truth.

      2. Even if Climate Control was a problem, the Paris Accord is not the solution. You have not offered any solutions, just offered opinions on how bad is climate control.

      3. The governments are not going to provide solutions because they have no expertise in solving problems.

      4. There are numerous variables in the weather and no one actually understands or can predict future events. That goes for earthquakes and all the other acts of the environments. If there is no real understanding of how it works, then how can it be changed.

      5. It has been 7 years since the climate change became an issue, and yet in those 7 years the only thing that has been done is more agreements, but no real actions.

      For example, NYC is going to in the next year put $500 million dollars to protect lower Manhattan from super storm Sandy type of flooding. There seems to be no sense of urgency. And another super storm could happen at anytime. The environment is not going to give warning or wait until some agreement turns into an action list.

      The proposed solution of the Paris Accord has decades for its purported solution. There is no guarantee that even if implemented the Accord wouldn't solve the problem. There are no contingency or alternatives in the Accord, and no commitments.

      Consensus doesn't have a good track record of being right!"

      We’ve already established you, Randy, are the only hubber who has ever used this ploy and why and it is only prudent common sense to be anonymous on the internet.

      The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3), a joint project of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National White Collar Crime Center and the Bureau of Justice Assistance monitors Internet-related criminal complaints. In 2017 the IC3 received and processed 301,580 complaints. One out of five victims (21.2 percent) was over the age of 60, the most victims by age. People between the ages of 30 and 39 ranked second at 19.4 percent, followed by victims between the ages of 40 and 49 with 19.2 percent. Victim losses totaled $1.42 billion. The most common complaints received in 2017 involved nonpayment or nondelivery of goods or services, which affected about 84,000 victims. There were about 31,000 victims affected by personal data breaches. Identity theft—where a person’s name or Social Security number is used without permission, affected about 18,000 victims.

      Yeah, there is no reason to not put your name on the internet? You feign calling it fear when you know it is nothing but prudence.

      Your ploy isn’t just that we are anonymous and you don’t respect that. You try to use it as a way to paint us as fearful or unhinged because we protect our personal identity.

      Anyone of billions of people can get your name Randy from hub pages and where you live and from that a criminal or deranged person can find out anything about you they want to know, can use that information in any way they might want to, get even with you, take advantage of you, stalk you.

      Actually the thought has occurred to me that someone like you who presses the issue with people for months, maybe years, is someone who actually wants to get that personal information so he can plan something nefarious against a person like me who consistently proves how ridiculous you and your opinions are.

Your question is nothing but another attempt at diversion from the only reason you use this ploy, an excuse to turn from the facts and attack the messenger.

      So you ignore the obvious, If you don’t think there is a reason to be anonymous on the internet you are in the extreme minority of people without common sense.

      Does having multiple online identities really show a “lack of integrity?”

      Is it disingenuous to use aliases online, or is it merely playing it safe?

      The United States Supreme Court ruling in McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Commission that the First Amendment protects our right to be anonymous:

      Protections for anonymous speech are vital to democratic discourse. Allowing dissenters to shield their identities frees them to express critical, minority views . . . Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority. . . . It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation . . . at the hand of an intolerant society.

      Of course I wouldn’t expect you Randy to agree with anything in the constitution.

      Try to rationalize your behavior in vain Randy, it’s obvious what you do and you of all people should be anonymous, i wouldn’t want to be associated with any of your lame behavior if I were you, you are a joke.

      Never had any problem with someone staking me and wouldn't care if they did. I'm semi-famous--or perhaps semi-infamous--for miles around my area and don't give a big dog f**k if someone wants to find me.

      But that's just me. But then, I suppose I don't have as many enemies as you and Brad.

      That's anecdotal evidence, Randy, and very unreliable. I have friends who tell me that it's hotter than they can remember. I also have friends who tell me that they don't remember such cool weather.

      Record keeping is the only reliable source, but when those records have been 'adjusted' by those with an agenda, they're no longer reliable either.

      I don't think AGW a conspiracy any more than I think progressive-socialism is a conspiracy. I do think it's an agenda that folks like you support because you really believe in it. But while a politically-driven agenda like AGW may not be a conspiracy, it is an agenda with devotees who refuse to take a clear-eyed inventory of all the dire predictions that failed to come to pass or that the computer models that AGW is based on failed to predict the climate just years away, much less for the next half-century.

      The notion that science is infallible is both silly and humorous. Science is a long series of errors, mistakes, and misunderstandings. Time and again, scientists have made claims that have been proved dead wrong, but they hate to admit it. Just a few years ago, science told us we were headed into another ice age and they too had the facts and numbers to back them up. Devotees began preparing for the coming disaster and refused for a long to accept that science was wrong. After all, science is never wrong!

It is just an observation on the childish, emotional dwaddle that you and the gumba boys think is an intelligent way to argue issues. This latest response of yours is consistent with all the rest that can be found in the history of comments on this article. And when we see you response to my comment, we will see another response that won't answer what I have written and copied here.

      This was your response

      --------------------------------

      "I've not personally attacked anyone, Brad. Just because we don't buy into your long-winded BS, it isn't considered a personal attack. You and Will make claims you can't back up except by dubious right wing links with your wild conspiracy theories which parrot Faux News.

      B: Then what is this, "Will probably takes meds developed by scientists as do most of the commenters on this article. If not, their family members do.

      Read this closely, one last time, I don't watch any of the cable news. I don't need them to make any conclusion for me. As for claims, you don't even try, how is long-winded BS work as an argument opposing any of our arguments on the issue?

      ------------------------------------

      This is what you were supposed to comment on and what I said about your delusional emotional opinions is shown in your response to it.

      You have no answers, so you call my detailed comment about the topic of this article BS, yet you offer no argument to prove it is BS. While, you offer no argument at all.

      You don't offer any facts just your delusional emotional opinions. Your answer to a question is another question. You also use personal attacks, name calling, and making irrelevant, vague, and ambiguous statements instead of trying to discuss the points. One only has to look at the statements made by the three of you in this article alone to show proof of my statement.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      You apparently don't know anything based on what you put as comments.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Can any of you succinctly, and tersely make an intelligent fact filled declaration of your point(s)?

      I have made mine over and over and you couldn't argue against it.

      1. The Paris Accord is a consensus of nations that agree or agreeing about climate change. A consensus as I have proven is not a fact, and it isn't a truth.

      2. Even if Climate Control was a problem, the Paris Accord is not the solution. You have not offered any solutions, just offered opinions on how bad is climate control.

      3. The governments are not going to provide solutions because they have no expertise in solving problems.

      4. There are numerous variables in the weather and no one actually understands or can predict future events. That goes for earthquakes and all the other acts of the environments. If there is no real understanding of how it works, then how can it be changed.

      5. It has been 7 years since the climate change became an issue, and yet in those 7 years the only thing that has been done is more agreements, but no real actions.

      For example, NYC is going to in the next year put $500 million dollars to protect lower Manhattan from super storm Sandy type of flooding. There seems to be no sense of urgency. And another super storm could happen at anytime. The environment is not going to give warning or wait until some agreement turns into an action list.

      The proposed solution of the Paris Accord has decades for its purported solution. There is no guarantee that even if implemented the Accord wouldn't solve the problem. There are no contingency or alternatives in the Accord, and no commitments.

      Consensus doesn't have a good track record of being right!"

      Will probably takes meds developed by scientists as do most of the commenters on this article. If not, their family members do. The right believes in science when it benefit them in some manner, but not when it goes against the Bible or Trump. Two entirely opposite beliefs...

      "The almost fanatical belief in AGW is obvious among the true-believer devotees. " - THIS is true because we fanatically believe in science, facts, and the truth, unlike your side which doesn't believe in any of them.

      Yo man! Not suggesting there's a leader/organization behind the hoax, only that the concept that man causes global warming/climate change absolutely requires that virtually everyone be on board if the drastic steps to rectify it are to be implemented. It only follows.

      Will, you're correct about deniers/skeptics being charged with "heresy". The man made global climate change believers REQUIRE almost everyone to be on board so that the drastic and economy destroying policies can be implemented.

      Deniers and skeptics, until today, are obstacles. We must therefore be dealt with.

      "Will, why not tell us where you get your info from?"

      Has it ever occurred to you that I have my own thoughts, based on my own observations?

      What I stated about the anger directed at 'deniers' (heretics) and the devotion to the high priests of AGW is quite true.

      The almost fanatical belief in AGW is obvious among the true-believer devotees. As so many others have noted, it has become a near-religion for the left, or at least part of a larger, 'Earth First' religion. Unbelievers and doubters (deniers) are angrily charged with heresy and demands for punishment from high-priest scientists.

      Just amazing to watch, especially since the best they can come up with is a 'consensus of opinion' in lieu of AGW proof.

      Brad, actually, I've done pretty well. Sure there are times I could've cleaned up the omitted words and misspellings (because like you I tend to react a little too quickly), but I slow it down, give it some thought, before I post it.

      You, on the other hand, react in the most irrational way, fall back on statements such as "you don't have an argument" or "you didn't answer my question" (when, in most cases, you either asked a rhetorical question or wrote and "invisible" one that only you, alone, can see and read), or pull out a question or comment that has nothing to do with the article. Then again, you should know this because nearly every writer on this site have noticed it. They've also noticed (as I have) you tend to downplay article that don't go along your line of thought by stating that it was irrelevant or "didn't matter".

      So, for a change, stop making me laugh at your comments, and start taking some time and write some thoughtful comments or Hubs.

      That's a laugh coming from you, Brad. You write a lot on the comments , but say very little in the process, mostly your nonfactual opinions. Why not address the points rather orating? And I'll put my writing stats up against yours anytime you like....

      B:

      Lets start with your comments on this article and see how it goes.

      -------------------------------------

      Dean Traylor

      Brad, what the heck are you talking about? This sounds more like crazy talk than a rational one. Nobody knows what your point is, but you call everyone out for not having a point? In addition, I don't even want to know what you think constitutes an anti-American ( I have a feeling you don't either).

      B:

      You don't know what anyone is talking about when this is your typical comment. Like Randy, why don't you go through your comments here and see how well you have done. And your opinions are just that because you only have opinions. The problem is not having opinions, the problem is that they are a random collection of rhetoric devoid of reference and content.

      You and the rest of your buds here on this articles comments.

      I asked Randy first, why do you think you are an American?

      Nothing that you have done here sounds like an American.

      You and the others I mentioned are too busy lol at everything to put any points in play, and why do you think you are an American?

      --------------------------------

      Don't you think first of all that the American Way is to vote out who you don't like in office? Do you think it is the American Way to find everything that the president says or does is wrong. I mean you ridicule the president, you argue against anything he does, you blame him for every problem especially the one created by the experienced politician presidents that preceded him and actually caused the problems that president Trump inherited.

      The democrats in congress and you mimic them have done nothing for the country, Americans, or Legal Immigrants. They have resisted since Trump won the election, and they have caused a divide in the country just because they lost.

      How is that American?

      There is a lot more, I can say but it would be more of the same kind of examples.

      Now, can you articulate as the teacher, and the writer you claim to be, and answer the question?

      You are the blank I filled in and you have your three mutesinear with you.

      What have you done that is American? Nothing!

      You have had numerous times to make a point but this is all you ever do.

      I am disappointed in you, but I guess in the end you are the anti American.

      And you can't even make any arguments on climate control. You and your fellow anti Americans just laugh at jokes only you seem to know.

      The real joke is that you think you are writers, but you can't put any thoughts today that argue your points.

      You probably think that the Paris Accord is the French version of the Honda Accord. Neither of which knows anything about solving a problem that doesn't exist.

      What's your point, Brad? Are you denying our comments are true? Does it make you feel good Trump attempted to commit obstruction of Justice on at least a dozen occasions? Or that Donnie was caught in numerous lies according to the report? Of course not, his base loves it when he lies and endeavors to break the law. Why, because deep down inside they are as racist and dishonest as he is. What a role model you have, Trumpsters!
