The Bible says...

A few different blogs have already reported on this topic but I figured I might as well too. Especially because it gives me the pleasure to introduce a nice new Kansas blog. It's more geared towards politics whereas mine tends towards science and those driving the attacks on science (crazy religious people, not sane religious people).

It seems that a school has come under fire for wanting to show "An Inconvenient Truth".

School board member Dave Larson says, "We have to ensure that our schools are not being used to politically indoctrinate anyone."

That's good. But global warming, like evolution, shouldn't be a political issue. It's a scientific one. So why the intent to try to change the battleground?

"The Bible says that in the end times everything will burn up, but that perspective isn't in the DVD," says parent Frosty Hardison (father of 7).

Ah. It's not in the Bible. Thus, it's not true. After all, the Bible is the key in determining how science works and what we teach in schools.

A few posts ago (in the de-luking post), I mentioned that I liked these types of posts, but that was before I read this. Now I'm reminded of how upset all this stuff makes me.

I know preciesely how you feel. Being deeply involved in this sort of thing, both as a bloger, as a student of science, and as a member of two pro-science groups, it's a constant struggle between wanting to stay informed, and be perminantly drunk.

sigh...

So which am I -- "crazy" or "sane"?

On second thought, don't answer that.

Actually, I think you have it backwards here. Per Hardison, global warming = burning up, which is in the Bible, especially given that we are, of course, living in the end times. (How could you possibly deny it?) His problem with it is that the movie doesn't give the Bible credit for this "prediction".

The Bible isen't true, it isen't even true as historical evidence. By the way the world will freeze if global warming continues, not burn.
