Andre said:Great thread Reasonmclucus, I'd liked you to show up a bit more in the Earth section.
I'd prefer to call global warming a cult more than a religion. Delicate difference. There are a lot of similarities.
A. (Anthropogenic) Global warming is as impossible to prove as the existence of a deity.
B. Only blind faith in the climate science respective high priest is required to be good.
C. As we all are convinced that it is true, it becomes true.
D. neither climate change nor deity are falsifiable. Climate change has always been true of course.
E. There is a distinct enemy to fight, Lucifer, the satanic gasses, Exxon, the sceptics.
F. having enemies strenghtens the social bonds, which strenghten the determination to defeat them.
Thanks. I haven't been able to find enough time for forums lately and have been spending some time in political forums. I have found that starting threads is a good way to have other things come up which prevent me from participating in them.
Your use of the word "cult" might be more accurate considering that cults are often narrowly focused. The disadvantage to the word is that the media tend to use it to refer to organizations like the Branch Davidians that are centered around a strong personality.
