A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Things to belive in – Part one the First

I’ve been listening to a number of skeptical podcasts, that is podcasts that have a skeptical look at things. I’d recommend the Righteous Indignation podcasts, they’ve been interviewing ‘believers’ in a very sympathetic way.

Anyways. Thing is. Climate change. Again.

I don’t believe it’s a man-made thing. I still believe this. I believe in climate change, it’s obvious, or seems obvious with age. Seasons are later then I remember as a child, and summer seems to last longer into the new year. So it seems.

What troubles me still is the ‘man made’ bit. I’ve blogged a bit on this before, so this is not a new position for me.

Where do I sit then when people want to throw out labels such as ‘climate change denier’. Skeptical podcasters do this, somehow they’ve elevated themselves to label makers. Of course I side with them about Homeopathy, Psychics and UFOlogists, but they are just different thinkers.

But “denier” gets my heckles up in an angry way. I don’t deny it, I just deny that man did it.

I don’t believe man went to the moon either. Just don’t believe they had the technology.

I don’t believe that there was a gunman on the grassy knoll, that Dianna was assassinated or that Lizards are the true rulers of the planet.

I believe that injections for vaccination are good things, I don’t believe that fluoride in the water is a good thing – mass medication seems wrong, like putting folic acid in bread for the tiny number of pregnant women that have a deficiency – just seems wrong in an overkill way.

I don’t believe in God, Heaven or Hell (I do capitalize just in case 🙂 )
