Ken Ham's Ark Torpedoed With Charges of Religious Discrimination

dave420 Re:Saw the debate (410 comments)

Nice strawman. Affirmative action was an attempt to fix the symptom of black people being under-represented in higher education and in the workplace. That's it. They didn't do it because black people are not intelligent, they did it because they simply were not represented in those places, and those places are the ones which bring money and development to the communities from which people come.

But as long as you can make stuff up to make a point, why bother with facts?

Ken Ham's Ark Torpedoed With Charges of Religious Discrimination

dave420 Re:Jesus never says no to non-believers (410 comments)

You are proud because you believe something? I thought pride was considered a sin by Christians. I'm sure you have some "logic" that makes it OK when you do it, though... Weird how that works. "I'm so proud because I've accepted a story on face-value - and decided to claim to live my life by it - even though in the exact same sentence I espouse this belief I show myself to not have really grasped it". Religion is funny.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

dave420 Re:Completely appropriate venue (972 comments)

Science doesn't have to defend anything - the evidence for AGW is massive, well documented, well checked, and stands on its own.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

dave420 Re:It makes you uneasy? (972 comments)

String theory and global warming are both testable, which goes to show just how much you know about this. You don't need to reproduce something in order to test it - there are other ways. It appears the science you think isn't so pure exists only in your argument.

Creationism Conference at Michigan State University Stirs Unease

dave420 Re:Why at a place of learning? (972 comments)

It's more along the lines of someone marketing a bubblegum flavoured bleach and calling it "Mr. Dino's Tasty Drink", and labelling it as being safe for human consumption. It's inherently dangerous by rational examination.

People might take the junk seriously, but that's what churches are for. They should indeed be able to discuss it publicly, but not under the guise of rationality, as that is where the danger lies. People might not realise they're talking out their asses, and get caught up in zombie Jew justice.

EU Sets Goal To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions 40% By 2030

dave420 Re:When did "Global Warming" become "Climate chang (172 comments)

"Global warming" = the warming of the globe
"Climate change" = the changes to the climate the warming causes

The pause doesn't exist, either. You stating that it does (and expecting to be taken seriously) shows you are woefully ignorant of the science, and desperate to not learn. Did you know you can ignore all the models and anthropogenic warming is still very much evident?

You're the one who's been had. You are arguing against trying to protect the world that you are leaving to future generations, and paying more for in the process.

When will you get over it, get mad, and get even with those who took you in? Oh, you won't, as you're too lazy to even bother to learn. What a surprise.

EU Sets Goal To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions 40% By 2030

dave420 Re:Piece of crap (172 comments)

Carbon footprint = measurable thing
Global warming = demonstrated beyond doubt (to most)
CO2 = some is good for your plants, too much will hurt them (and you)

For someone with a "univercity" degree in meteorology you sure as heck don't know what you're talking about. Also, meteorology != climate science. You should know that if you have the degree you state you do.

EU Sets Goal To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions 40% By 2030

dave420 Re:Nucular (172 comments)

Global warming will not be a picnic for you in the north. You'll witness a lot more pests who carry diseases you and your fauna/flora are simply not prepared for. Your land might be a better temperature for farming, but the soil will not be up to snuff and the yields will be poor. Even if the land was good, you lack the infrastructure to take advantage of it. Then there's also the distinct possibility of feedbacks caused by the cold north heating up, causing heating to accelerate. And none of this has even mentioned the weather, which will start to suck in ways you can't even imagine. But whatever - thinking is hard! burn moar coal!

EU Sets Goal To Cut Greenhouse Gas Emissions 40% By 2030

dave420 Re:Should be easier now. (172 comments)

In the immediate future, you are right. In the long term, however, Germany's power-plants will pollute a lot less. Wait for the end of the "Wende" before crying it's not working. It shows you either don't know what's going on, or simply just want to make a point in the face of the evidence.

Which isn't really difficult when the country in question is remarkably wasteful of energy...

You are confusing evolution (of which industrial melanism most certainly is) and speciation.

Incapacitating Chemical Agents: Coming Soon To Local Law Enforcement?

dave420 Re:USA - One Big Prison (152 comments)

Or has been reading the official statistics published by the US government... That US-bashing US government sure has some nerve, am I right??! But I guess you can safely ignore the problem if you chalk it up to European propaganda and don't spare it another thought...

Incapacitating Chemical Agents: Coming Soon To Local Law Enforcement?

dave420 Re:die by taser or gas? (152 comments)

Those sound like pretty decent definitions, apart from the use of the word "appear", which means those definitions are entirely subjective, and allow someone who had no political motive behind their heinous crimes to be labelled a terrorist when they were not trying to coerce public opinion.

They also clearly define plenty of actions by the US government as terrorist in nature, but I'm sure Fox News wouldn't discuss that...

NY Doctor Recently Back From West Africa Tests Positive For Ebola

dave420 Re:Proper risk management (371 comments)

Whereas in countries actually physically affected by WWII they had things like the "KEEP CALM" posters. Yes, panic is a massive problem. People aren't rational. As long as people are not rational, and news media makes money from hyping dangers, panic will stay a large issue.

Grow up, read some history, familiarise yourself with basic epidemiology and public health management, and then maybe you'll stop making a fool of yourself. Wishful thinking, I know.

Shooting At Canadian Parliament

dave420 Re:Lies, damn lies! (524 comments)

In Britain, for example, her family has given their land to the public for an annual stipend of £40m. The land generates £200m a year, so that's a pretty decent deal right there.

And while she might have power on paper, the last monarch who tried to screw people over got killed for it. She knows her place, and is a consummate statesperson.

How it is in Canada I do not know.

Terrorism is a motive, not an action. It's impossible to know what this is without far, far more information.

Shooting At Canadian Parliament

dave420 Re:Dear Canada.... (524 comments)

Correlation does not imply causation. Or does that not apply when one wishes to hate? You're "just saying" abject, childish nonsense. You, and the society which bred you, should be ashamed of you and your ilk.

dave420 Re:Dear Canada.... (524 comments)

Ask yourself whether they attacked because they are Muslim, or because of some other reason? The fact you ignore that entirely means you really don't give a damn about the answer, you just hate Muslims. Brilliant.

Will Fiber-To-the-Home Create a New Digital Divide?

dave420 Re:Spoiled much? (291 comments)

A household of two people trying to do something that requires 3.26Mbit/s each... Or a household of 3 each doing something that requires 2.17Mbit/s... Or a household of 4 each doing something that requires 1.6Mbit/s... "Large" family doesn't even come in to it - just "more than one person" is enough to show there are problems.
