Don't Let the Lights Go Out

The prosecution of seismologists in Italy for not "adequately" predicting an earthquake (which, of course, is impossible) has prompted some to warn of a new Dark Ages descending. But they're not the only ones.

In this country, so far, it's more a case of "your opinion isn't politically correct, so therefore you're stupid" than "you're wrong because of the evidence". For example: despite rock-solid evidence that there has been NO global warming for 16 years, the alarmists continue to decry both mankind and its use of fossil fuels as the cause of the ongoing crisis. You know, the one that doesn't exist.

Don't be afraid to call a spade a spade, and keep right on pointing to the evidence ... whether or not it fits their agenda.

As someone who has worked in a science field for +30 years and has a geology degree - that verdict scared the hell out of me because too many stupid people in the U.S. think that Europe leads the way in some sort of coolness.

We also see this in the black community, e.g. 'white guy's knowledge, history, science et al are invalid, because they are the white guy's.'
Babies and bathwater come to mind...

PH, I really do understand. The thing is, that anyone who's ever spent any time abroad comes back & kisses the ground on arrival. I know I did.

gfa, I've noticed that, too. Even in black churches, the cry in the last 5 or 10 years has been, "Not the white man's God!" As if God were a Caucasian. The willful descent into ignorance is appalling.
