Major Trump administration climate report says damages are ‘intensifying across the country'

Holding up very well, Whell, you moron, According to the Trump Administration’s own report. Too bad you’re too cowardly to defend your posts.

Tangier Island is disappearing due to climate change. Yet:



Moron president* is telling these poor, ignorant folks that the climate change that is, without a shadow of a doubt, destroying their island, is "fake". And they believe the ass, despite the obvious.

Sigh. How is it possible, in the 21st century, in this great country, that anti science fools are so prevalent? It boggles the mind.
I saw a neighbor woman who's little girl had a pacemaker put in a couple weeks ago. I asked her;

"How's your little girl?"

"She's doing wonderful!"

"Well, thank God for the miracles of modern science."

"Science aint got nothin' to do with it! All the glory goes to God, Praise Jesus!!!!"

That, right there is the problem.

The doctors, surgeons, nurses and technicians... The decades of research by smart people around the globe that led to this moment.....All meaningless because "Jesus got MY back! I am highly favored!". Well, let's see. We've had religion for thousands of years but, sick little girls like hers usually didn't live to see 10 just thirty-forty years ago.

Could this be bullshit?

Just who created science?

One can believe in both science and Jesus, not one or the other.

Men created science. Science is a way of studying and understanding nature, created by men such as Laplace.

See a brief bio and discussion here: https://www.quantumdiaries.org/2011/...-a-hypothesis/

When water freezes or vaporizes into steam, God does this?
Science is facts of nature, laws. God if one then created science, man just now is beginning to see and understand.
It is not one or the other.

My little point is that the facts and laws of nature are not science. Science is our way of uncovering and understanding those facts and laws, which apparently always existed.

How the facts and laws came to be, and why they are what they are, are questions that science really doesn't know much of anything about at this time.

Science works like this:
1. Carefully observe.
2. Reason from what is observed, and nothing else.

So the method isn't much good for unobserved stuff.
