THE WORLD IS GOING TO END. THE MAIN QUESTION IS “HOW?” THE NEXT QUESTION IS, “WILL THERE BE SIGNS THAT THE END IS COMING SOON?”
Global warming will raise the temperatures of the ocean, we are told. This will produce more, and worse, hurricanes and who knows what else. Then, Newsweek says, comes the end:
In spite of science, climate deniers and skeptics, like President Trump, who pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Agreement on climate change earlier in 2017, continue to dismiss the effects of human activities affecting our environment. But Irma and company are just the beginning. By the end of the 21st century, according to the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, hurricanes will be a lot more powerful and dangerous due to rising temperatures of seawater.
THE GOD THAT DOES NOT EXIST
The climate-worshipping liberals, who claim to believe in no God, want us to believe that climate change will eventually destroy our species. That must not happen, they cry. Since they don’t believe our species was created by a loving God who placed us here for a special purpose, and who will not destroy us, a thinking person should ask “Why not?”
Who cares what liberals think? If there is no God, then who cares what people think, in general? Who cares if not limiting my toilet’s flushing capability to 1.6 gallons-per-flush will destroy the environment?
They are not Christians. They do not believe in God, and they do not believe in serving as steward to His creation. So who cares what happens to it — or us?
If they feared death out of a fear of Hell, then I might understand. They want to live as long as possible. But they say they do not believe in such things.
Nevertheless, their fear-mongering works. People who have not thought these issues through are persuaded. They do not want to die, afterall. Probably because they have some notion that there is an afterlife that begins with divine judgment. So they buy into the hysteria.
The claim is that, unless we do something right now, sometime soon, the weather is going to get worse and worse. Governments must pass laws so that the weather patterns will diminish in strength. That will give our species time to flourish. Otherwise, the weather will destroy us.
In other words, if the weather continues to get worse, then we are getting closer and closer to the end times of humanity.
Like an Emory University scientist is quoted as saying in the recent AP news story, our brain is a pattern-seeking mechanism. It attempts to recognize patterns in what otherwise appears to be random data. And when we really want to believe in something, it has no problems helping us to see what we desperately want to see.
Take our belief in the end times…
