And if it's morning, there must be another example of overwhelming dumbfuckitude over at SDA. Ah, here we go:
Y2Kyoto: Al Gore Strikes A Blow For Intelligent Design
A global warming disciple was troubled by the Goracle's presentation in Regina;
... In the very same breath, he then continued to explain that according to his religious beliefs, this “rise of humans” was God’s creation of mankind - apparently 200,000 years ago. His graph then changed to include the caption “Adam & Eve” above this starting point.
I started laughing, and I had to consciously blink my eyes and double-check the screen to make sure I was seeing it properly. Let me get this straight...the guy's entire presentation exists in order to present people with the scientific data showing that human-caused climate change is a fact. He does his very best to include references in all of the slides, showing to any thinking person that this data is not made up, that it comes from the forefront of our scientific research (there was many slides containing data from Science journal, and a few from Nature).
He tarnishes his beautifully crafted presentation by not only stating his belief in creationism - but by placing the words “Adam and Eve” right on the slide (which is actually a scientific graph) as a caption explaining the beginnings of mankind.
Something doesn't add up here. On one hand, he is using science to predict the disastrous outcome of our current actions and rally support for taking proactive measures to make sure bad things don't happen, but on the other hand, he is clinging to stone-age beliefs that another very important area of science has proven wrong (that we humans evolved from other forms of life, and that every organism on Earth has a common ancestor).
Odd that none of the media in attendence picked up on this. Sharp as tacks, that crew.
Why, yes, that's certainly embarrassing ... until (unlike Canada's Lowest Common Denominatrix and her pack of trained poodles) you take the time to, you know, read stuff:
The tension between Gore the politician and Gore the environmental activist was even more apparent on two occasions when the former vice president approached sensitive political issues.
When be [sic] brought up a graph showing human population growth over the past 100,000 years or so, Gore at first made light of recent debates over the origins of human life: "You don't have any new laws here I should know about?" he quipped before labeling the point at the beginning of the graph "Adam and Eve," provoking laughter. But then Gore adopted a more prudent tone, adding, "In all seriousness, I really do not see any conflict between my religious faith and sound science."
Ah ... it was a joke. Humour, as we like to call it.
I think my job here is done.
