    I love the truth.

    Its a secret.
  1. The climate models for temperature prediction are "accurate" because they are updated continually. As time progresses the model is updated to reflect the true temperature increases. The first temperature models produced during the 80s I believe had the temperatures being 5 C higher by the year 2000!!! That of course didn't happen. Basically, the models have limited range of accurate prediction since the only reason the models track with historic temperatures is because the models are constantly updated.
  2. What do you love about computers? If you like the hardware aspects of working with computers look into computer/network administration. If you like using computers for problem solving then CS is definitely what you should do. A B.S. in CS isn't too difficult. It will require a decent amount of work however. I am a Computer Engineer which means I took half electrical engineering courses (circuit design) and half software courses. I always considered semesters with more CS classes the easier semesters. There will be labs and lots of programming assignments so be prepared for
  3. Non-catholics. (which includes baptist, etc) Non-christians Id guess. Less career/education oriented people (id guess smarts play a role in this too) Looks like non-religious people. anyone I imagine, welfare / gov programs cant discriminant. Well, according to statistics less developed countries have higher birth rates. Also, less educated non-career oriented people in developed countries have higher birth rates. So....I think there might be something to your idea, but more likely I think there are other factors that play the true role of making people have less evolutio
  4. Well, then explain what you described and yourself commented sounds "silly" is if the label utopian hippy society is wrong or off. I see no bare tree. But perhaps you can explain where capitalism has failed or where you expect it too...from my perspective it is succeeding with vigor. It seemed that most of your post focused on abolishing the ideas of structured economy specifically capitalism and shifting to (again you called it silly yourself and its your idea) an idealistic "hippy" everyone working together and geting equal shares of everything and no one is in a "rush" soc
  5. Um. I didn't pin any viewpoints to any post. I posted my opinions or "my take" of his ideals. Just like prior people. If he believes I misinterpreted his post I'm sure he can point out where my opinion is wrong or something. Heh.
  6. No. Ah, a utopian hippy society...interesting. Oh dear. It isn't necessary. Of course most things in life aren't necessary. Like the computer you are using to browse the internet, none of that is necessary either. Interesting. To be honest....most of that post had me visualizing a circle of hippies sitting around a camp fire smoking marijuana and singing kumbaya. If that is your thing and you have no ambition then you are in luck. No one is forced in this country to be productive. If you don't want to be productive and you have no ambition it i
  7. No. If you read the in depth analysis of the protocol you will see what climate policies do to negatively effect economic growth etc. Right, so you "cite" a theory without actually citing anything and just assert the exact opposite of what the studies and links just demonstrated. See above. See above... First, that wasn't ever my assertion. My assertion was that exaggeration or misrepresentation of climate data to push policy can be detrimental to the economy. Strawman BAD!
  8. You are missing my point. My point is you asserted that people defined intelligence or THINGS for that matter in a way that ensured humans were superior. For you to make that claim simple means you disagree on the definition of intelligence. In which case what makes your definition right and not just one designed to make humans inferior? I think you were asserting humans aren't any more intelligent than other species on earth right? Then you listed YOUR reasons why you thought that way and why others were just defining intelligence so as to make humans by default more intellige
  9. Here yah go: http://www.eia.doe.gov/oiaf/kyoto/economic.htm http://www.heritage.org/Research/EnergyandEnvironment/BG1437.cfm http://www.accf.org/publications/testimonies/test-impactkyoto-march25-1999.html http://www.ncpa.org/iss/env/2002/pd042502g.html http://www.siyassa.org.eg/esiyassa/ahram/2001/7/1/ECON2.HTM The first one is very very detailed. Some of the others not as much. For more as usual just use google. The last one reminded me of a very interesting point. To paraphrase: The economic effects of the most industrialized countries will help developing countries
  10. Ok. That is exactly what my original post did, but I'll try to do it again but more straight forward. Unsubstantiated claim about humans doing more detrimental things....but I'll play along anyway. Humans have egos. Humans experience greed (among other things lust, desire, etc). Humans are ambitious. Humans have emotions. These characteristics can cause some nasty behavior. Some of these nasty behaviors are some of the things you listed above. Basically a statement like what you made above of why humans aren't intelligent just means that your definition of intellig
  11. No, its a question hence the question mark not a statement, notice the lack of a period. So, answer the question. This is as much a strawman as your unsubstantiated comment that others define things in a way to ensure superiority. Weeee. Oh and the strawman comment about the dolphins: You being on a website questioning whether or not we are smarter than dolphins proves we are, more simply humans can question their reality. Ummmm .... no. That refers to "definitions ensure our superiority". Now if I had said something like oh you are so silly then yeh, I gu
  12. Sigh. My original claim was that it is an improper assertion that current warming is DIRECTLY due to human emitted CO2. And it isn't, there are a multitude of effects. Do humans contribute to the warming, yeh, is the warming directly related to human cause, well yeh as much as it is directly related to natural causes. Saying warming is only directly related to humans and not the ENTIRE dynamic is irresponsible. As far as attacking people over "rhetoric" I can only imagine you are referring to your quote of "increased global climate". If you had read my posts and remember
  13. Ah, so your definition of intelligence is the lack of emotion, greed, ego, ambition? Interesting. So while you assert some people define intelligence in a way to ensure superiority, you define intelligence in a way to ensure inferiority. You just did. No we don't, thats silly. Human's aren't the fastest, strongest, quickest, most agile etc etc the list really could go on forever. Discussions about intelligence especially comparing human intelligence to other species are always fun. As far as the original topic about evolution in developed countries:
  14. Haha, ok this is fun. Right, I have no issue with the data. I have issue with the representation of the data by some groups with a specific detrimental agenda.
  15. It isn't too difficult to look it up yourself but ok. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_warming There are plenty of historical graphs for both CO2 and temperature there. Note, for the references please see the bottom of the page as the IPCC is listed several times since that is the holy grail for environmentalist I'm sure that is necessary or the data is just make-believe. Further the first paragraph of the link explains the 100 year warming trend we have had 1.33 +- .32 degrees. The main "idea" to take away from the articles is that the CO2 concentration plots DO NOT follo
