That might be fun.  As long as they don’t have shotguns.  Or chainsaws.  Or other zombie-killing weapons.

They think they’ll be coming out to meet Jesus. He wouldn’t be happy if they came out to meet him armed to the teeth now would he? tongue wink

They may not be armed when they come out, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have weapons readily at hand. cheese

At the risk of reanimating this thread, I thought that this was interesting!

I COULD not have upset the soft-left, soft-green middle classes more if I had crept in their kitchens and snuck genetically modified tomatoes in their paninis. Why did I make the film The Great Global Warming Swindle? The head of science programs at Britain’s Channel 4, Hamish Mykura (who has a PhD in environmental science), asked me to. He suspected the global warming alarm was not based on solid science. So did his predecessor, Sara Ramsden, who was also eager to make a film in this area. I was an experienced science documentary producer used to handling complex subjects.
So what was our conclusion, after months of research that involved talking to hundreds of scientists and wading through mountains of science papers? It’s all codswallop. The notion of man-made global warming started life as a wild, eccentric theory and, despite throwing billions of dollars at it, scientists have failed to stand it up. Man-made global warming is unmitigated nonsense.

This is not the first time scientists have talked rubbish. Absurd theories come and go in science all the time. A few years ago an ostensible consensus of scientists said one-third of the British population were about to pop their clogs because they had eaten dodgy hamburgers (the mad cow disease scare). Many scientists build whole careers talking out of their hats. But usually it goes unnoticed. There is no real harm done.

Full story here.

I see, so doing research, analysing data, drawing and testing your conclusions is ‘talking out of your hat’?

Only in the same way that just making stuff up because otherwise you wouldn’t have an argument is ‘responsible journalism’.

[Edit(1): August’s Scientific American has a quite good round-up of the scientific evidence of global warming, should anyone be interested]

[Edit(2): The Center for Skeptical Inquiry (who, I’d guess, have more than a little experience of fraudulent claims) have issued a position paper on the evidence for global warming.]

Still, it’s not all bad. Apparently the number of noctilucent clouds is on the increase…

Every cloud has a silver lining. . . . I guess.

That somehow lacks the same charm. . .

This will show the real cause for global warming. Forget what u heard heres the truth to the matter. http://www.yahweh.com/PWMags/PW06-07/ONE.htm

people have been predicting Armageddon for about 2,000 years now, it is always ‘just around the corner’.  Yet it never seems to happen!  How come?

Dan, wondering

Dan, Jr. Member has said that the world will end on September 12, 2006. It’s already 2008 and nothing yet happen. The Bible said no one knows when it will happen, only God the Father.

Nope. Dan didn’t say so.
The forum member he quoted said so.
And none of us believed him either.
