Religious knowledge comes into being when someone has a speculation.
He fancies himself so highly, he thinks this idea is so wonderful, he
imagines it came direct from the creator of the universe. He does not
test the idea. He sells it to others by claiming it is god’s
idea, not his, and hence must be accepted without question. Everyone
takes the idea on faith and declares it must never be updated, no
matter what counter evidence is discovered. It may remain frozen in the
minds of adherents for thousands of years. Religious knowledge is
not an alternative path to truth. It is simply
guesswork, barely worth the paper it is written on.

I find it odd that American advertisers are so enamoured of Texan regional accents
dropping gs, gitting
instead of getting and general corn. Perhaps they
reason hick actors will project as too stupid to be deceptive, or to conjure up the
homespun charm of Mayberry circa 1955. That accent to me
conjures up bigots and rednecks like George W. Bush and Rick Perry and TV evangelist
scammers and homophobes.
In 2013-09, the National Geographic published a map
showing what parts of the world would be under water if the polar ice melted. The
shocking part is nearly all the agricultural land will be under water. Prime
agricultural land tends to be flat low-lying land, especially on river deltas. It is
far more than just high temperatures we will be dealing with. Florida will be
completely gone. Most of Louisiana will be gone. Denmark, the Netherlands, Bangladesh,
Thailand will all be under water.
