‘Evangelicals 'Coming Around' to Evidence for Global Warming, Professor Says’ ***UPDATE***

(UPDATE below the fold)
Mark McReynolds, assistant professor of Environmental Science at Biola University [ostensibly a ‘Christian’ school of higher learning - ed], said, "Evangelicals, like the rest of our society, are coming around to the real evidence of global climate change. It is a big, complicated topic, with many implications for us in the U.S."
Apparently, those evangelicals who are succumbing to the world-view that we’re warming the planet are being handed a bill of goods.

The first evidence of this is found in Genesis 8. After the waters of the Great Flood dry up, God tells Noah this:
“While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night
Shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22)
Throughout the Bible, we are given evidences of God’s control over the weather: as well as the Great Flood, we have all of these, and that’s just a sampling of how God controls the weather. If God controls the weather, then it’s His prerogative to heat things up or cool things off – who are you, O man, who answers back to God, or tries to meddle in His affairs?

Beyond the face that the science (the real science, rather than the massaged science which gave us ‘anthropogenic’ global warming in the first place) has already told us the planet isn’t growing appreciably warmer or colder than is usual, I find myself wanting to ask these evangelical Christians if they truly believe God would allow His creation to be destroyed by man, particularly when He has told us that would be His job.

I didn't think big-time folks actually read my blog. I'm honored.

The evangelicals don't realize that climate alarmism is a faith, with a false god called Mother Earth. It has its own bible called the IPCCs AR4 Report, climate scientists are the new preachers, they have the new devil called CO2 and it is based on the belief that all humnas being sinners through our evil modern life. The evenagelicals had better wake up to this new Earth faith.

Before evangelicals 'come around' to accepting evidence for global warming without question, I'd suggest they should re-examine just exactly how they arrived at their position on the issue, and the moral implications surrounding the treatment of skeptic climate scientists.

I wrote an online article in Dec 2010 where I concluded with the following sentences; "So which is the bigger sin? Failing to stop a so-called global warming crisis which has increasing credibility problems with its underlying science assessments, or breaking the 9th Commandment in order to be sure [skeptic] scientists' criticisms aren't taken seriously?" Please see: "The Case of the Curious Climate Covenant"
