Idiots

 

“…Arctic sea ice is vanishing, glaciers melting, sea levels rising, droughts and floods increasing, and the past decade — according to the World Meteorological Organization — was the warmest in recorded history.”

But, hey, don’t look at the evidence or listen to the scientists. Listen to the untrained, non-scientists who either get paid by lobbyists to express a sympathetic opinion, or whose most basic tenet of faith is that they must believe what they are told despite all the evidence – the supposedly “pro-life” people who are likely to have the blood of billions on their hands over the next century.

So what’s next? A series of essays by Sarah Palin about the Large Hadron Collider and the mysteries of dark matter? An MIT lecture series by Rush Limbaugh regarding the thermodynamics of black holes?

[ … ]

Ex-beauty contestants, drive-time DJs, TV sports announcers, hairstylists, newspaper columnists — basically anybody whose math skills topped out in the 10th grade — rarely have anything substantive to add to the sum of technical and scientific knowledge. That’s what they most resent about it.

‘A series of essays by Sarah Palin about the Large Hadron Collider ‘
Fantastic, do you have the ISBN …is it a QUP short run?
We have pondered, we may well be enlightened.

Ah, there are a couple of subjects that have been approached recently, to which I find a type of concession has been planned.
May I bring up a word that short cuts a diatribe : monomania.

And (second item from the top), what is going on with replies?, I offer this: http://www.news.com.au/national/books-prove-prayer-can-cure-cancer-says-archbishop/story-e6frfkvr-1225812387736.
I.m sure that will cheer up the terminal ill and their loved ones.
What a gathering of primal, fraudulent, dissemblers these carpetbaggers are.
