Well, well! Earth Day has come and gone and for the FIRST TIME EVER thousands of scientists from around the world have been on the march.
The boffins are alarmed that there is an ANTI-SCIENTIFIC movement underway. They believe that right wing politicians and religious fundamentalists are out to subvert the conclusions of years of research. The clock of civilization and progress is being turned back and they are out to validate themselves at ALL COST.
Signs are being waved that say:
"SCIENCE CANNOT BE WRONG."
" GLACIERS DO NOT LIE"
"THE EARTH IS DOOMED UNLESS WE DO SOMETHING"
In other words, Science is the new religion and the experts are the new gods and to deny the word of scientists is to be an heretic and a danger to society.
Well you can book me down as an apostate.
I, and millions of others like me, actually believe in the Creation Story from the Book of Genesis. It runs contrary to the fairy story of evolution and is totally believable. We also believe that, while the planet may be warming, that it has all HAPPENED BEFORE and that God's Hand is on the thermostat of the whole universe.
We discredit the fanciful notion that mankind was descended from apes and fully expect that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, shall shortly appear to put the record straight and usher in the eternal Kingdom of God.
Now, if we were to counter march and proclaim such things we would be mocked as fools and obscurantists, so we don't waste our breath. Our final word is: WAIT AND SEE!
