For the record, I do not find the arguments for global warming persuasive, given the actual, observed evidence. I find the argument that “global climate change is man-caused” to be pseudoscientific flapdoodle. But I would welcome global warming, if it’s occurring; increased arable land, higher production of food crops. There would be definite advantages that would, in my view, outweigh any disadvantages.
The claim is made by some that Creationism isn’t science because it doesn’t make testible predictions. Dr. David DeWitt sets the record straight.
Edit: I just want to put it that, whereas I once became concerned whenever some new “scientific study” was released that “absolutely proved” the Molecules-to Man Evolutionary Hypothesis, nowadays I know that I only need to wait a few years, and the conclusion of the study will have been so debunked that the Darwinoids will make fun of me if I try to bring it up as part of an argument against the MtMEH.
