Gil jumps to a conclusion:
|And this stuff is passed off as science? This makes belief in Tinkerbell sound like the epitome of rationality.|
Where is the rigorous, scientific, analytical evaluation of this proposal? James Barham reasons as follows:
Humans breathe out C02. CO2 is a greenhouse gas. Greenhouse gasses are heat-trapping. Therefore, make humans smaller, AND WE CAN SAVE THE PLANET FROM IMPENDING DOOM! (Oh, and I guess that if we were smaller we would drive smaller cars, etc., and therefore burn fewer fossil fuels.)
How do such obviously mindless clowns like this guy get any press?
This is example 52,547 which demonstrates how secular materialism has corrupted legitimate science.
Faithful Bilbo sets him straight:
Barham was reviewing an article where a scientist proposed reducing the size of humans in order to reduce our carbon footprint.
Gil recovers gracefully:
Actually, he prints a whole message full of indignation which never once acknowledges his error. Short version: The universe is going to die, but not me because I'm a Christian and Jesus loves me. Also, he's always been incredibly smart and very special:
If God implanted anything in his head, he doesn't mention it.
|Believe it or not, I’ve thought about such things since I was a child.|
I now attribute these thoughts to the fact that God implanted eternity in my heart.
