Thread: Huckabee jokes about Obama being shot

    Default Re: Huckabee jokes about Obama being shot

    My dad's in the "scientific community", he's a professor of meteorology. He tells me that there was- and is- tons of debate about climate change. I asked him a few years ago and he said there was no consensus about climate change, if it was occuring and, if so, why. Now he says most scientists accept that climate change is happening and that human being are at least partly responsible.

    I fear that it might be the political, not the scientific, elements of society that oppose open debate on the issue, which is really too bad. Climate change should not be a partisan issue.

    I know that religion teaches may valuable moral lessons, but it also contains messages that are debatable from a strictly moral point of view, yet dogma from a religions one. The example in my post was an attempt to show what kind of morality I find acceptable in politics, and what kind I don't.

    (BTW... I really like your pics!)
    There are stubborn asses in any field, but I tend to trust the mainstream majority.

    Glad you like my pix. Ditto to yours.
