Cold Christmas Eve

No Matter What Happens, Someone Will Blame Global Warming.

Global warming was blamed for everything from beasts gone wild to anorexic whales to the complete breakdown of human society this year -- showing that no matter what it is and where it happens, scientists, explorers, politicians and those who track the Loch Ness Monster are comfortable scapegoating the weather. takes a look back at 10 things that global warming allegedly caused — or will no doubt soon be responsible for — as reported in the news around the world in 2008.

1. Cannibalism

In April, media mogul Ted Turner told PBS's Charlie Rose that global warming would make the world 8 degrees hotter in 30 or 40 years. "Civilization will have broken down. The few people left will be living in a failed state, like Somalia or Sudan, and living conditions will be intolerable," he said.

Turner blamed global warming on overpopulation, saying "too many people are using too much stuff."

Crops won't grow and "most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals," Turner said.

2. The Death of the Loch Ness Monster

In February, Scotland's Daily Mirror reported that 85-year-old American Robert Rines would be giving up his quest for Scotland's most famous underwater denizen.

A World War II veteran, Rines has spent 37 years hunting for Nessie with sonar equipment. In 2008, "despite having hundreds of sonar contacts over the years, the trail has since gone cold and Rines believes that Nessie may be dead, a victim of global warming."

Christmas Morning:

This post points out the absurdity of Man-made "gobal warming".

If anything and everything can be attributed to Man-made "global warming", doesn't it point out the essential psuedo-religious nature of "global warming"?

Blame the gods.

Or at least blame Man for despoiling the Earth and offending the gods to justify an authoritarian takeover and regulation of Man's activities by the "priests" of "global warming."

This is asinine.

The one true reason:

In the beginning was reason.

And the reason was with God.

And the reason was God.

Man was made in the image of God.

A being, capable of reason and understanding and seeking God's reason: How Nature's physical relationships and processes work. (Man calls these relationships, physical laws.)

Note: The New Testament was first translated into Greek and compiled in that language. In the Book of John, the Greek word for "Word" is logos, or "reason" which was subsequently translated into English as "Word".

What does Man know?

In the beginning was reason.

Merry Christmas!
