The New Apostles Creed: "I believe in the Holy Goric Church"

This AGW conspiracy stuff is enough to make one nutty. Have we all heard that people in Hopenchangin are *fasting* and holding *candlelight vigils*? People are starving themselves! I can't help but put these AGW cultists up against the turtles, dolphins and whales beaching themselves on Cape Cod because of the hard winter. The great die-off begins and in this inverted world, the animals make more sense than the humans. Or maybe that's always been the way, as the animals know they are not God.

It's a well-worn Chesterton quote for a reason..."When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing - they believe in anything." Including and especially the noble lie.

Absolutely superb rewrite of The Apostles Creed. It should be posted in every public space.

It's as though the earth doesn't have a molten core that can swallow up all of our earthly population and endeavors and not even feel a hitch of indigestion.

I posit that you could put the combined population of the U.S. and all of its cars, emissions, exhalations and factory generated pollutants from the year 1800 until today, into the Gulf of Mexico and it wouldn't change the Gulf Stream's temperature for more than a week.

And, heck, if the warming is actually, y'know, Global, then why do we need so many data stations and variables? One thermometer in Sahara oughtta tell us the same thing as one in remotest Alaska. It's either global warming or a local feature.

And what will we do when the earth's core entropy is measurable?

And here I was thinking he really needs a pompous Latin title. I wish I knew enough to translate the rest of this.

Sanctus Albertus Magnus Gore, Prophet of climate change, Malleus (hammer) of climate change heretics and digital brown shirts, Martyr to Republican vote fraudsters, Mega-hypocrite.

"Even purely as a matter of precaution, given the seriousness of the consequences if liberals really do destroy the world's economy, we should drop them all into a large vat of raw sewage. Not to do so would be grossly irresponsible.”
