FL gubernatorial Charlie Crist states the obvious, handily rebuts GOP talking point on climate change.

There is a popular talking point with the GOP right now that gets used in the presence of discussing climate change.  The line is “I’m not a scientist.”  It has the handy effect of absolving them from answering any questions about climate change presumably because we should defer to the climate change scientists.  The irony [Read More...]

Forest for the Trees, JT. Forest for the trees.

I’ve been painstakingly preprocessing Larry’s 11-page post about evolution. Back a couple months, JT addressed a video by Joshua Feuerstein. Larry’s post was responding to JT’s response.
