Provide us with the citations for just 10 of the foundational papers supporting climate change (really an infinitesimal amount of the literature supporting the science). These must be papers from peer-reviewed journal articles (i.e., the actual science of climate change, not IPCC reports). Then, clearly show us how these papers can be and/or have been scientifically debunked (data, analyzes, and conclusions, please). - bilbo Says:

"I really can't do a good job, any job, of explaining magnetic force in terms of something else you're more familiar with, because I don't understand it in terms of anything else you're more familiar with." Richard Feynman
Consistency requires you to be as ignorant today as you were a year ago. -- Bernard Berenson

Paraphrase Leviathan - As religion is only found in man, so its seed must be in man. Men live always in fear, and make gods of things to praise and blame for their condition.
The "substrate free" version of it is called universal darwinism and is essentially an algorithm composed of three steps: replication or copying, variations amongst the copies, and selective survival of the copies determined by which variations they possess.
To suggest that religion is being misused when it's used to oppress women is like arguing that hammers aren't meant to be used to bang down nails, just because they can also be used to pull out nails.

Bloomberg's Margaret Carlson, on Monday night's Countdown, said it best: "Sarah Palin is the latest in a line of populists, but she's very different in one way. Populists historically have pretended not to know anything. They've actually been part of a fairly intellectual group of people. But she really doesn't know anything. And it's in God's plan apparently that she not learn anything."
