Private corporations hire scientists to dispute global warming, so both sides have a financial incentive. I assume your cynicism about humanity extends to corporations.

The world's population is approximately 7 Billion of which 300 million are Americans or about 5% of the world population but yet that 5% is the detemining factor of the fate of mankind

Then show us something which falsifies Evolution.
If there are any mammal, reptile, and amphibian fossils dating all the way back to pre-Cambrian times, I would like to know about them.
If there is a dating instrument which stops at 4004 BC and dates anything and everything as younger than that, I would like to know about it.
If there is any other explanation for vestigial organs and embryo development, I would like to know about it.
If there is any other explanation for junk DNA, I would like to know about it.

Didn't Mean To Insult Your Liberal Slant....America " Is " The Greatest Country To Ever Be Known On Earth...I Wont Apologize For That.

While Other Countries Diddle Monkeys And Create Aids....WE Have Protected, Fed, Clothed, Built, Taught, Gave...Until We Bled.

This Did Not Come From Liberals/ Atheists...This Came From Religious Patriots...Who Understand Liberty And Freedom Does Not Mean Entitlements. It Does Not Mean Free Health Care,

The Rest Of The World Aspires To Be Like Us....Liberals Aspire To Be Like The Rest Of The World.

Exceptional-ism ?....You Bet

My religion teaches true love.
So does Evolutionary theory.
The word "love" is a handy umbrella term for instincts which we share with many other species.

Since our species has the longest childhood of any animal species, and since our species is highly susceptible to venereal disease, it is in our Evolutionary interests to practice monogamy.
That's where romantic love comes in.

Since mammal juveniles cannot survive without parental supervision, it is in our Evolutionary interests to care for our young.
That's where maternal and paternal love come in.

Since our ancestors hunted in packs, it was in our Evolutionary interests to make friends with same-sex peers.
That's where brotherly love comes in.

<quoted text>If you think anyone has anything more than a miniscule understanding of embryogenesis you're gravely mistaken.
All right, then, I'll admit it: I don't know what creates embryos.
Now what does that prove, that God did it?

At one time, people didn't know that the Sun is a mass of hydrogen and helium, so they had to invent a Sun god.
At one time, people didn't know that thunder was caused by hot air meeting cold air, so they had to invent a thunder god.
In short, for every gap, there is a god.

Maybe there is a god who created that mass of hydrogen and helium.
I don't know.
Maybe there is a god who puts hot air in contact with cold air.
I don't know.
What I do know is that it is not constructive to abandon all scientific inquiry with the words "God did it."

So with all due respect to your embryo god, I continue to hope that we will someday find out what creates embryos.

Wolverine you have a poor understanding of how oil prices are set. Speculators are who set prices. It is not based on limits but on greed. I'd be happy to provide you with many primers but my guess is you arent interested in the facts.

What is sad is that we have all the necessary tech to move away from oil (e.g. electric) but because there is more to bilk of the masses through ignorance and stupidity we are where we are today.

So please stop with your tin hat consipracies and read the facts.

You do recall Jesus was a Liberal and believed in helping the less fortunate and hence was all for free health care. The real hypocrisy is that you religious types don't read your own Bible before making things up.

Studies show more Atheists have read the Bible than religious folks. No one is surprised by that.

Not only read the bible but undrstood it. Atheists have a far better understanding of religions than those that purport to be of that faith.(probably why they are atheists...understanding a religion is the first step to shunning it.)

"Religion allows you to understand everthing without knowing anything..." Can't remember who said that, maybe it was me...
