Comments: GORE

Ironic, isn't it, that Olbermann scoffs at those who think the earth is a few thousand years old (right or wrong, there is indeed some evidence...), which implies those who devoutly hold to what they read in the Bible are crackpots; yet at the same time, he gives unquestioned credence to Gore when he uses the same book that nutcases believe?

I am reminded of the '92 nomination acceptance speech: "...the Scriptures say, 'eye has not seen, ear has not heard, neither has it entered the mind of man what we can build.'" Or so said then-governor Clinton. He was (mis)quoting Paul's first letter to the church in Corinth, Greece, the ninth verse of the second chapter (I Corinthians 2:9). I almost went postal when I watched him do that.

p.s. Glad you all are in the States!

This is quite a doozy of a juxtaposition of entries -- you STILL want to believe in the WMD despite out and out gov't reports and everyone admitting they don't exist, but you want to deny the majority of scientists who say global warming is a problem we had better deal with and fast.

Are you joking?

So scientific theories are proven by majority vote?

How interesting. Must begin lobbying votes for cheap spacelift and FTL technologies.
