Suitguy is not bitter.

feels he represents the many educated and rational onlookers who believe that the hysterical denouncement of lay scepticism is both unwarranted and counter-productive

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Isn't that supposed to be under water by now?
Considering what's going on in Kentucky and California right now, not to mention the worldwide temperature records we've had in the last month, it's hard to believe anyone is seriously keeping this thread going.
What was the temp in California in the summer of 1641?

I guess her fellow citizens don’t count in your mind.
