It's a stupid blog, written by a seemingly unintelligent person.

Which in itself would not bother me, but the many, many other offensive entries there including the gem about the Islamic "tradition" of desecrating other people's holy sites, push me over the edge.

Why do you insist on posting such drivel?

Not when they're full of shit.

Not when they're full of hate.

Not when it's an issue that needs FACTS!!!

There's a reason you can't find legitimate sources, you should ask yourself why...

when presenting an argument, yeah. for example, if someone wrote a research paper, do you think it'd be acceptable for them to cite a blog as a source? not a blog by a well-respected journalist or with a position of authority on the issue of the paper, just a blogger. of course not.

i can write a blog about that the sky isn't blue, it's actually purple, but that doesn't make it so.

There was so much snow in Ireland before there was any kind of substantial snow in New England (up until a couple of days ago there wasn't).

That is some craziness there-that's all.

You're a teacher, right? Say you have a student who writes a report arguing that the Earth is flat. The only sources he uses are anonymous blogs, he offers no corroborating evidence from established experts and scientific studies, and he doesn't even attempt to address evidence that contradicts his position.

Would you be satisfied with his report?

I'm really confused as to why you seem to so freely accept this Global Warming Theory.

It seems to be so popular.


And...


I'm about sick of the propaganda to save the earth.


Go green?



It would be nice if our efforts were more directed to helping people.

You think using less energy and consequently having lower electric bills doesn't help people?

I'm confused as to why you seem to so freely ignore the mountains of scientifically tested and peer-evaluated evidence supporting this Global Warming Theory.

Heck, it would also be nice if you actually responded to questions asked directly of you, rather than simply posing questions in response without actually engaging in dialogue, but hey, nobody's perfect.

Besides, I fail to see how reducing pollution and promoting more economical use of natural resources doesn't help people.

Go to the African continent.

Take a look around at what global warming has done to previously arable land. And how that has hurt the people there.

Why do you hate Africans?

Here's an example of your last few sources:

A personal opinion piece on the Civl War full of lies.

A blog about global warming that was full of simpleton science and hateful tangents.

A "government was behind 9/11" website.

An article that claimed aspertine was created to enslave humanity.

And a website claiming 1500 scientist don't believe in climate change and come to find out anyone with a bachelor of science no matter if it was in architecture of basket weaving could sign it(and didn't even have to prove they had a bachelor of science).




And we're the ones that fall for propaganda?

Well lots of them...

But the one I was addressing in that post is your recent post about the Civl War, the blog was full of lies, and they were all pointed out to you.
