I used to get paid to watch these things. I don’t any more. So… I’m going to go read a nice novel in a coffee shop. Please feel free to talk about the debate in comments. I will, actually, be curious to hear what people have to say, just not willing to sit thru so […]
Your post caused me to go check the Rapture Index (http://www.raptureready.com/rap2.html) which I had not checked in a while. Since I see it is not particularly high, I have severe doubts that the endtimes are upon us. 😉
Are you kidding?? It’s 181! The record high was 184 in Aug 2011. That’s only 3 points off.
We’re doomed, DOOOOOOOOMED, I say!
As a devoted follower of the Rapture Index, I go by the all time high of 188. I have my eye on a nice Mercedes🙂. However, here it is Monday morning and we are still here (at least in Eastern PA).
LOL material: The world ends and the misogynists meet their judge:
You love making fun of religious apocalyptic cults. But are you yourself, like so many of your fellow leftists, a member of the global warming apocalyptic cult? That would be amusing.
RD: I’ve noticed this character over on Ian’s site. I suggest ignoring him; he probably thinks Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church. 😈
Not to mention that a majority of the world’s actual scientists “believe” the “apocalyptic cult” of AGW.
You place a lot of faith in the government-sponsored bureaucracies and mass media pushing AGW. Do you consider those good actors on the whole?
No, I trust the scientists, the majority of whom acknowledge the reality of AGW.
I distrust the fact that the dissenting scientists tend to be getting money from the carbon-energy companies.
But then, Anglophone conservatives must deny AGW, because the sine qua non of Anglophone conservatism is analingual service to the real-life equivalents of Scrooge McDuck and Montgomery Burns, while if AGW is real, then capitalism is fornicated six ways from Sunday. 😈
All I can say, good to see you back blogging and in top form as always.

The Confluence proud finalist: "Best Liberal Blog"
Body: Last week I went down to Washington, D.C. to deliver a paper at a conference in the technical field where I worked, ten years or so and two or three careers ago, before the dot.com trash. The trip was solely an exercise in merit-making, since I doubt very much I'll get work in the field, but reconnecting with old friends was really great -- even […]
Some people complain that I'm always ragging on Democrats instead of on Republicans. Leaving aside my opinion that some Democrats are Republicans, I just don't see the point, since the Republicans are already hopeless, and there's nothing I can do about them except hope we somehow get a party that will actually oppose them. Until the Democrats […]
