97 percent of scientists agree that fossil fuels are good. The other three percent were stuck in a massive ice flow and didn’t get a chance to vote. 🙂
(The results of this non-scientific poll have not been substantiated but it is clearly meant to be sarcastic.) 🙂
Have you heard the claim about the 97 percent of scientists who agree about Climate Change? What they agree upon isn’t always discussed or clarified but what is clear is that we don’t want to look like idiots and disagree with those white-coat-wearing-smart-people. They are never wrong–right?
Quotes from scientists…the white-coat guys:
“Astronomers now find they have painted themselves into a corner because they have proven, by their own methods, that the world began abruptly in an act of creation to which you can trace the seeds of every star, every planet, every living thing in this cosmos and on the earth. And they have found that all this happened as a product of forces they cannot hope to discover…. That there are what I or anyone would call supernatural forces at work is now, I think, a scientifically proven fact.”
–Robert Jastrow, the astronomer and physicist who founded NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies. Please see Jastrow’s book God and the Astronomers for further reading.
“Astronomers who do not draw theistic or deistic conclusions are becoming rare, and even the few dissenters hint that the tide is against them. Geoffrey Burbidge, of the University of California at San Diego, complains that his fellow astronomers are rushing off to join ‘the First Church of Christ of the Big Bang.’”
–Astrophysicist Hugh Ross, former post-doctoral fellow at the California Institute of Technology and author of The Creator and the Cosmos: How the Latest Scientific Discoveries of the Century Reveal God.
“The fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who – in their grudge against traditional religion as the ‘opium of the masses’ – cannot hear the music of the spheres.”
“God created everything by number, weight and measure.”
“In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God’s existence.”
“I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.”
—Sir Isaac Newton, who is widely regarded to have been the greatest scientist the world has ever produced. Newton was a devout Christian.
If 97 percent of scientists are always right maybe we should start believing them when it comes to God?
I wonder if Jesus would drive an SUV?
Here’s a great video from a very smart guy who doesn’t wear a white coat. He questions the reasoning behind the 97 percent point of view.
