    Re: Summer OT: What We Believe Poll

    HOW is it we used to be the leader of the free world?

    I didn't realize I could chose not to believe in science (although I quibble with man being the main cause of global warming)... Embarrasing.

    I find it amazing that so many people can't find room for their faith within science. I don't think science has to eliminate faith nor does faith have to eliminate science unless you are totally narrow in your views.

    Global warming (and cooling) is a natural cycle, humans are just speeding it up, IMO anyway.

    So the gist of the article is that the Republican party is actively trying to make people less intelligent and confused by basic scientific principles.

    Seems like a given.

    Well, humans are the direct cause of the the speeding up of climate change. The amount of CO in the atmosphere, garbage in the oceans, etc. is because of us.
