I know there are scientist on both sides,
but the division is something like 95+ percent on the side that it is a problem.


The new museum in Tenn had scientists on hand that said the earth is 6000 years old, that Adam and Eve played with dinosaurs and that Noah took them on the Ark.

The majority of scientists disagree.

I believe the majority of scientists.
But you can also see the evidence - biblical literalism does not fit it and should be taken off the table to begin with, and that is the crucial element; being able to put together a model of what is going on and how and predict what it will do (and adding greenhouse gasses and shutting down carbon sinks will lead to warming and could tip the whole system into a new mode), I think that any regime to stop climate change by trying to reduce emissions is bound to fail simply because the cost is too great and self interest always wins (look at how many Kyoto signatories have failed to meet their targets) - finding stalls and ultimately solutions depends on improving an understanding of the major controls on climate and the feedbacks within the system, if we truly are approaching a cataclysm then it may be that nothing short of climate engineering can avert it.

Bad grammar and punctuation really can fuck up a point.

He's hit and miss live. It's worth the risk.

So this is a short news blurb from NewsCorp highlighting the fact that Bob Dylan is old and doesn't follow science news. A+ thread

Bob Dylan didn't necessarily follow the folk scene's political agenda, and he began playing electric which raised the ire of his peers. These are two separate instances demonstrating his 'rebel' moniker. You don't need to have an english degree to figure that out from the sentence

That sounds reasonable, huh? But to say the dinosaurs were on the ark, oh boy
The dinosaurs on the ark would have obviously been baby dinosaurs or dinosaur eggs. The drastic after effects of a world wide flood (cooler temps) made the climate/planet inhabitable for dinosaurs.

The entire basis of Christianity is based on the belief that God impregnated a virgin, she gave birth to his son, Jesus performed miracles, was crucified, rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven.

Do you consider this as well? I mean what is more preposterous...a gigantic boat full of animals or Jesus being raised from the dead after three days?

when you put it that way, it's all pretty preposterous.

No, but never undersestimate the need for clearly getting your point across.
