I have been pondering things for a bit of time. I know this may seem hard to believe, but I actually have thoughts of my own. So I am sitting here and its rather late, but I get roped into yet another documentary about global warming.
There are a few things that most people do not do. One of the first is that they tend to never actually research anything they read in the paper or on the internet or what they may see on television. People tend to blindly believe what they see or hear without any reservation to a dissenting point of view on almost any given issue.
Another thing that most of us do is hear. Hearing is a very natural human sense. Unfortunately most of us hear, setting aside of course people that are deaf, but we do not listen. I on the other hand listen and not simply hear.
The media fully understands this concept. They also work on the assumption that there are many people in America today that only just hear, but they do not comprehend most of what they are actually hearing.
This allows for a huge blurring of the lines. What I mean to say is that a guy might get hit by a car, but by the time I hear the story, he was running from a bank he just robbed after shooting an armed guard and was hit while trying to carjack a woman with three kids in her car.
So while listening to most of these documentaries, I am always amazed at how they are incredibly careful as to how they word things.
Such as a “scientist” who looked into the camera and said “If these numbers are accurate, then the world would have 22% less land mass in 50 years.”
She did not say the numbers were accurate. She did not say that their science had shown conclusively that the numbers were accurate. She simply made a statement based on an assumption, yet the way she made it sound, we are going to be under water in fifty years.
Statements like these do two things. They make people afraid, which is the general intent here, and they are so sensational that they stick in the average simpletons head to be propagated to all the other simpletons out there.
On to the comparison between global warming and the Supreme Court.
Most of us clearly understand that we have a Supreme Court that is rife with opinions. Some even call it an “Activist Court.”
This would mean that the Supreme Court has an agenda based not on law or the constitution, but on political ideology.
I would tend to agree with that. I truly believe that there is no way for any human being to make any decision without their core beliefs being factored into that decision.
Core beliefs are what we all believe to be the only way of perceiving things that transpire around us in the world. Politically, religiously and socially, its what we believe is absolutely undeniable truth. The way we think about these things comes from the way we are brought up by our parents and what we believe as independent thinking humans.
With that being said, what would make any of us believe that these so called global warming “scientists are any different?
Is there anyone out there that believes that their own ideas and beliefs are not the God’s honest truth? That is if you even believe that God is real. Yet another opinion on things if your an agnostic.
When I watch these documentaries, I am always listening. Most of these shows are predicated on theory and speculation, nothing else.
These so called “scientists” almost seem to be hedging their bets, either because they are afraid that their opinions today might prevent them from their government funded grants, which for those of you that don’t know help to pay for their own existence, or because they know that to date, the science has not been proven to be scientifically accurate.
The only thing I ask for in the global warming debate is intellectual honesty. I have to this day not once seen any evidence that global warming even exists.
The idea of so many people blindly following along like pigs being led off to slaughter is absolutely fascinating.
Then again I am equally as fascinated that there are people that believe that a judge can base his or her decisions with regard to law and the constitution without bias. Go figure. JD
