(Chuckling) Good point, Mr. Chestnut. And that's true whether addressing issues relating to evolution, anthropogenic global warming/climate change or pretty much anything else. Evidence is what's important, not how many hands are raised.
I see no implication in Mr. Bardsley's letter that indicate he was writing about the display of the US flag on a flagstaff (even though his allegorical example may have included flags on staffs). The gist of his letter was obviously about this school's policy of banning the wearing of a US flag on a T-shirt. I agree with him on that. Rather than banning any particular flag on a shirt, it would have been better for the school to warn all students that they will deal harshly with any students who threaten violance against any other students -- regardless of which flag they display on their clothing. IOW, target behavior rather than a flag display. As for the 9th Circuit Court decision, well ... does anyone really agree with all that court's decisions? Apparently not, as some 94% of their decisions have been reversed by the SCOTUS.
A place to insert a decorative ruby or piercing, perhaps?
Downhill poster: I've requested my last response to you (where I called you an idiot on this issue) be removed. That's because I should not have stooped to your very low level of handing out personal insults on this site. I haven't yet looked into who you are, but based upon your less-than mature responses to me and others, I'd be surprised if you have enough years or life experience to participate in serious discussions on this subject. This will be my final direct response to you on this site.
Downhill poster: people like you never have courage or conviction enough to call someone a liar to their face ... only from behind a computer screen. But rest assured I would call you an idiot on this issue to your face because that's exactly what you are.
I suppose we should just be thankful the predator-huggers can't bring back saber-tooth tigers and
T-Rex .... yet.
Can't imagine anyone getting weary of this discussion. Too interesting (albeit controversial). Hope you keep it going.
Thanks Namvet ... did see a similar report on that. Of course as we know, true planetary global warming of a degree or two and the increased carbon dioxide which follows temperature rise wouldn't cause drought anyway, but would tend to bring more humidity and rain due to evaporation ... and therefore result in improved farmland growth worldwide as well. (Vegies do love CO2. :)
There is absolutely no repeat no evidence that human-caused co2 emissions significantly affect global temperature or climate, and you would know that if you looked into the issue honestly and with an open mind (which of course you never will). I don't shout, by the way ... and it's very strange to me that this issue is corrupted by "left vs right" politics. It shouldn't be.
Thanks, Igor. Also of course there was Galileo who was tried for heresy for supporting the theory of Nicholas Copernicus that the earth moves around the sun. He said, "The authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual." (Or words to that effect...)
