I want to start out with a warning. The following essay is a tough read. I go into depth using some reasoning and metaphysics to help establish my position on Climate Change (human-induced), its religious evolution and subsequent corruption of science. I spend some time using Aristotle’s genius to lay the ground work for the power of an idea. I felt it was important to delve into the subject philosophically due to science’s origins and my religious comparisons. Please tough it out…this Aristolean introduction helps greatly in preparing you for the disappointing truth in Climate Change.
In addition, as I have mentioned in previous blogs, I am an indifferent Catholic. The beliefs and faith I discuss are analogous and do not intend to question or offend the personal or religious beliefs of others. But, one thing I do not apologize for is my view that Climate Change has gotten religious, and as such, corrupted its scientific grounding.
So, here we go…
One of our greatest inventions is something you cannot see, hear, taste or for that matter, touch. It has billions of followers and has solved some of our greatest challenges. But it has also spawned unending conflict and cast misery among many. Yet this invention has taken us to the moon and is arguably the most profound creation that has ever blessed and cursed our planet.
This invention is an “idea” …and what makes it so compelling is humankind’s unwavering belief in it.
So what does this have to do with religion, Climate Change, and the corruption of science?
For some of you, it will mean little, but for many of you, it is the difference between choosing the truth and being told the truth.
