The Bible and Climate Change

One of the most vocal and cynical deniers of climate change science, U.S. Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., says the Bible backs up him up:

“Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ my point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.”

    He really needs to use Romans 8:22.

    The last time the Bible was used to settle a significant scientific question was, what, when Galileo was censured by the Catholic Church? How’d that work out, anyway?

    The joke is on you. He’s *courting* idiots, so it’s actually a brilliant move!

    Santorum put on his Dunce’s Cap today by announcing that carbon dioxide was not harmful: ask a plant.

    What an idiot.

    The only arrogance, is this idiots, dark age type comments. Why would any god think anything of a minuscule planet, revolving around a yellow dwarf star in the arm of an average galaxy. If man is god’s best creation, he is no god of any stature. Humans are among the most hideous creatures on the planet together with pathogenic bacteria & house flies.
