Ah the apocalyptic mentality..... Apocalypticists are like nationalists. The laters think that they were born in the best possible country by pure chance. The apocalypticists, also by pure chance, think that they are in a pivotal moment on history where some catastrophe or something wonderful will happen. The end of all wars, the prosperity forever, the enlightened age of eternal progress, the climatic apocalypse, the new Acuario age, or the second coming of Christ. (or the first coming of the leader that will end wars, tame the climate,a inaugurate an acuario age and so on).
Of the two, the apocalypticists are the worst. A nationalist can kill few before being defeated because they can´t hide the fact that they work for themselves and they find rapid opposition. but the apocalypticsts work "for the good of humanity" and are here and there everywhere, ready to commit whatever crimes to advance or avoid the coming apocalypse. And because their propaganda say that they work for the good of Humanity, and not for themselves and their laboratories and their political careers, they find little opposition. On the contrary, they find armies of hyperinformed idiots. They are late-news addicts with null background knowledge in human affairs and almost in anything else except his little specialization, uncapable to interpret and integrate what they see and hear for a couple of yeas if not days and compose mentally the big picture. Ther fish-like memory and their opinions are shaped by professional opinators that follow the smell of money and the last trends in polls. You can do little against their propaganda armies. Their generals don´t have personal lifes. They are like priests, dedicated to evangelize unbelievers to their obsessions. Occupy the burocracies of the states and specially the international institutions. they feel compelled to work in the mass media and the Education. You will never win the battle. You have a familly, children, a future in which to think... They don`t. Just mock at them. sit patiently an wait for the reality to work for you, and the apocalypse will ridicule them one more time with his absence. The great and unlooked for discoveries that have taken place of late years have all concurred to lead many men into the opinion that we were touching on a period big with the most important changes.<http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/t/thomasmalt366117.html> Thomas Malthus<http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/quotes/t/thomasmalt366117.html> ☨1834 2013/11/11 meekerdb <meeke...@verizon.net> > On 11/11/2013 1:47 AM, LizR wrote: > > Obviously they could all be politically motivated or in the pay of > mysterious socialist organisations, and it's always possible that their > modelling is wildly inaccurate, but unless someone is actually making up > the data and the measurements then *something* is going on which is > causing the world to warm. > > > And I would add that the modeling has consistently predicted global > warming from fossil fuel burning starting with Savante Arhennius's pencil > and paper calculations in 1890.
