In the Daily Crap today there are two interestingly related stories.
In the Sudan, as soon as you are born you are Muslim whether you like it or not. Choose another religion and you will be killed. Even if you have decided to be Christian and are eight months pregnant. There is no option available, you have no power to decide your own way of life at all.
The other story is the tale of a climate heretic who has been ostracised by the Church of Climatology for defying his faith and daring to try to convince Satan of the Truth. The Church of Climatology do not yet have a fully-torturous Inquisition and do not yet have the power to sentence the unbeliever to death (they are working on it) but otherwise… can you spot the difference? Just look at the venom in their supporters’ comments. Are they really any less radical than the likes of Boko Haram?
Is there any difference between either of these and the wackos at Waco? They are all dangerous cults. Once you get in the only way out is in a box. Dare to even consider another viewpoint and you must be destroyed.
This cannot, in the most absurd caricature of reality, be considered a scientific way of doing things. It is the dangerous cult way of doing things. It ends up with Stalin’s Russia or Pol Pot’s Cambodia or King John Jinglyjangly’s North Korea. Every time.
And people vote for it. They campaign for it. They support Climatology without question or reason. They shout people down as ‘You are not a scientist’ without first ascertaining their credentials (that means ‘asking’, for the antismokers who trawl through here now and then).
It is no different to the old -and still used – ‘racist-Nazi-bigot’ spouting of the older version of the same thing. Same drones, different word. They didn’t even need retraining.
It’s really all the same bunch of whining losers every time, whether it’s smoking or drinking or salt or sugar or anything at all. Haters gonna hate, it’s what they enjoy and they are the useful idiots of the Hate Brigade. They always will be because they have no original thoughts of their own.
Even so, I did think it amusing that the Mail would run those two stories together and not imagine for a moment that anyone would see the connection.
Climatology is a religion, not a science. It has zealots all to ready to burn heretics at the stake or stone them to death, just like any other paranoid and insecure belief system.
If this religion was confident in its predictions, it really would just wait for them to happen and then say ‘Well, we were ready. Were you?’
Instead it just shouts down opposition with threats and insults.
It has nothing else.
