Nope, Man is hardwired to THINK. Take the best information he has available and work with it. Some choose faith to answer their questions, usually because they started when they were 2 years old.
You assume when you say that I believe that a "natural force caused the creation of the universe, but you have no data to back it up because no scientist has ever been able to duplicate this force" that I chose to care. That knowing that, or believing that makes a difference. That is the difference between those who believe in a deity and those who do not. It matters to those who do and they think it matters to those who don't.
The Universe IS. Period. Am interesting in knowing it's genisis, sure. Does it affect my core beliefs if I don't, not remotely. The Universe is way to big to assume that we will ever know its secrets.
As for Spencer, he is not shown the respect you seem to think he has earned due to his lack of scientific method in drawing his conclusions. Basically his sloppy work. A perfect example is the chart you finally posted. "Al Gore Predicts Only 10 Years Left..." It shows a trend chart WITHOUT providing sufficient trending, choosing instead to waste 70% of the chart on a Political Message instead of trying to actually show relevant data that, if accurate might just prove his point.
THAT is why he is not respected.
As for your guarantee that the research of 1000's will be laughed at. Your grandkids will be the ones to grade that guarantee. Go ahead and put it in writing for them now so they will have it in 2058. See just how smart grandpa was.
I am 100% comfortable with my decisions on this. They are founded on research, reading, logic and trust in some very smart people.
If there is one thing I've learned in my 42 years, is that these so called 'scientists', these 'educated' cream of the crop, seem to jump to conclusions BEFORE irrefutable facts are presented. Such is the case with GCC/GW. It is easy to draw a conclusion, THEN gather 'evidence' to prove it. Once that 'Theory' becomes an accepted baseline belief, such as Evolution has, no amount of evidence that disproves that theory will be listened to or accepted.
Mcbear, you seem to conveniently forget, that it was just 20 years ago, these same scientists were screaming 'Global Cooling' and 'The Next Ice Age'. All areas of our country and the world were experiencing severe winters, record snow falls and record cold. 'Evidence' was presented to back up the assertion that this weather phenomena was a real threat to mankind. But, this severe cooling trend has all but disappeared and the issue is now being replaced with Global Warming. The difference is that no one thought they knew what to do about Global Cooling but all these 1000's of scientist that you worship at the feet of, are now advocating that we make drastic, life changing plans at a cost of trillions of dollars to curb what is believed to be a man made problem and only man in his arrogance, can fix it. Sorry, but I and many others are not buying what you guys are selling. Why? Because these scientists, who swear to follow the basic scientific rules of Hypothesis-Theory-Fact, are ignoring that to jump to a conclusion when they have admittedly not completed their work, by a long shot.
Dr. Spencer is not respected by you because you say he makes a political statement instead of a scientific one. What in the hell do you think your group of scientists have been doing since the start of this bullshit? I've seen crapumentarys made and text books published teaching our children an unproven theory as FACT, without the necessary data to firmly conclude that man is, indeed, the causative factor in this weather trend, that is clearly, at this moment, reversing itself as we speak. But you ignore it because you SAY Spencer did not provide the necessary scientific facts with his chart. Spencer is simply gleaning the data from NASA satellite information to make a mockery of this Global Warming non-sense and THAT is what I really think rubs you the wrong way. He is not a sloppy scientist, he is a lone scientist that isn't respected, anyway, because he dares to challenge the 1000's of IDIOTS who have drawn a conclusion and teach it as fact without conclusive scientific basis. These 1000's of scientists will only destroy REAL science because the more it is determined they are WRONG, their research dollars will dry up and their reputations will be dashed. They can't have that so, that is why it's important to them to have certain 'solutions' enacted NOW, so they can lay claim that it was these actions they put into place that are responsible for a cooling trend that has already begun.
Smoke and mirrors.
