    Pope Francis should be brought in on the fact that the environmental movement genuflects not to God but to Gaia Pontificating from his window in a Vatican palazzo on Sunday, Pope Francis bypassed tens of thousands of pilgrims and tourists, to lavish with gushing praise a few hundred activists who had marched to St. Peterís Square under the banner ĎOne Earth, one familyĒ. Sunday marked the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. ďI encourage the collaboration between persons and associations of different religions on behalf of an integral ecology,Ē Francis said, offering good wishes to young people discussing what...

    Courtesy of Vox Cantoris, we are alerted to the astonishing end of the encyclical, Laudato Si. I wonder if any paragraph worse than this could have been written by any Pope. The text is below. This is not a draft. It is the official version from the Vatican site. 246. At the conclusion of this lengthy reflection which has been both joyful and troubling, I propose that we offer two prayers. The first we can share with all who believe in a God who is the all-powerful Creator, while in the other we Christians ask for inspiration to take up...

    ABOARD THE PAPAL PLANE ó Pope Francis said Thursday he is convinced that global warming is "mostly" man-made and that he hopes his upcoming encyclical on the environment will encourage negotiators at a climate change meeting in Paris to make "courageous" decisions to protect God's creation. Francis has spoken out frequently about the "culture of waste" that has imperiled the environment and he elaborated en route to the Philippines. While there, Francis will meet with survivors of the 2013 Typhoon Haiyan, which the government has said was an example of the extreme weather conditions that global warming has wrought. "I...

    Disciples of Gaia and the Deindustrialization of America Anyone who has followed the debate over climate change in recent years has probably noted the seemingly religious fervor with which the pro-alarmist crowd approaches the subject. Opposition to the environmentalist agenda of deindustrialization is not just viewed as wrong policy, but the rankest heresy. To deny that man-made global warming is going to destroy the Earth is tantamount to spitting upon the holy scriptures of the ďgreenĒ faith. Opposition is not just misinformed or wrong-headed, but is actually sinful and evil, unholiness that cannot be allowed to continue by the Disciples...

    As a Christian and a fan of Hollywood’s past biblical epics, I got excited upon viewing the first trailer for Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. The story of Noah and his ark has resonated through every culture of man, yet has never been the subject of a major Hollywood motion picture.Alongside my enthusiasm, skepticism lurked. Modern Hollywood producing a biblical epic adhering to the written narrative and theological themes seemed unlikely given a culture increasingly opposed to the source material. That doubt grew with last month’s report that a disclaimer would be attached to the film’s marketing explaining that “artistic license...

    Former climate change alarmist Dr James Lovelock, famous for popularising the "Gaia" metaphor, continues his journey back to rationality. Lovelock is objecting to a "medium sized" (240ft high) erection planned for his neighbourhood in North Devon by infamous windfarm operator Ecotricity. The UK currently has 3,000 onshore turbines and 6,000 are planned: this is the main reason why electricity bills are soaring out of control in order to pay for the inefficient, highly expensive windmills. Lovelock calls the runaway windmill building "industrial vandalism". In an objection to the planning application made to Tiverton council, Lovelock points out that one nuclear...

Several National Weather Service offices, including the office in Chanhassen, are replacing wind chill warnings with what they're calling "extreme cold" warnings. "In large part, it's just a name change," said Todd Krause, warning coordination meteorologist for the weather service's Chanhassen office. Krause said warnings used to be issued if the wind chill factor dropped to minus 35. But if the temperature was minus 35 with no wind, no warning was issued. The new extreme cold warning will be...

Nor is it simple atheism, which has no depth, no mass appeal, no staying power. Rather, it's a religion most of us think is dead. That religion is paganism ó and it is very much alive. Paganism is simply the natural gravity of the human spirit, the line of least resistance, religion in its fallen state. The "old" paganism came from the country. Indeed, the very word "paganism" comes from the Latin...

    Climate Science: Noted scientists at a Chicago climate conference declare that global warming is not only dead, but that the planet faces a big chill for decades to come. What about those frozen wind turbines? It's not exactly Copenhagen or Kyoto, but the 700 scientists attending the fourth International Conference on Climate Change, sponsored by the Heartland Institute, had some chilling news of their own in the most liberal sense. "Global warming is over ó at least for a few decades," Don Easterbrook, emeritus professor of geology at Western Washington University, told the gathering. "However, the bad news is that...

    CNN ^ | May 17th, 2010
    Sometimes referred to as ďThe Mouth of the South,Ē the CNN founder lashed out against religious believers in the past. He once dubbed Christianity a ďreligion for losersĒ and wondered aloud whether the Ash Wednesday observers around him at work were ďJesus freaks.Ē His marriage to Jane Fonda was rumored to become strained when she started finding religion. And while his stance has certainly mellowed with the years - he apologized for his past comments and joined with churches in 2008 to fight malaria - his suggestion that God may have had a hand in the oil disaster that killed...
  • British Court Deifies Gaia for Earth Day

    It’s appropriate that for Earth Day a British court has essentially confirmed Gaia’s status as a goddess who is worshiped by eco-acolyte. What so many have observed—that beliefs about the environment have morphed into a new cult—is now being openly acknowledged by its members. And like all cults, this one rots human brains and endangers the human species. First, the case: Tim Nicholson was an environmental sustainability expert working for Grainger, the UK’s largest residential landlord. He was fired, he maintained, because of his views on global warming and a list of environmental issues about which he harangued his bosses....

    In the beginning Great Spirit created clean air and Gaia. And Gaia was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And Great Spirit moved upon the face of the waters. And Great Spirit said, Let there be light: and there was light. And Great Spirit said, Let Gaia bring forth grass, O so green, and the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above Gaia in the open firmament of the clean air. And Great Spirit made the beast of Gaia after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every...
  • Ash Backward (Global Warming Causes Volcanic Eruptions?)

    Science: An Icelandic scientist says climate change spurs volcanic eruptions such as the one disrupting air traffic in Europe. Rather, the evidence suggests volcanoes cause global cooling and Arctic ice to melt. The stunning eruption of a volcano under Iceland's Eyjafjallajokull glacier has disrupted air traffic over the continent of Europe as vast plumes of steam and ash were spewed into the atmosphere. Once again, we witness the power of nature over man even as man blames himself for nature's acts. Almost every malady on earth has been blamed on global warming, so it wasn't all that surprising when Freysteinn...
  • Earth Day, The High Holy Day of Paganism

    The Silent Majority ^ | 04-19-10 | J.D. Longstreet
    We are about to witness a worldwide pagan rite Ė the worship of the earth, the worship of Gaia, (Earth Mother). Earth Day is the worship of nature -- rather than Natureís God. Though touted as, somehow, NEW, worship of the earth is likely the oldest religion on earth. Born of child-like ignorance, it has survived centuries and is, once again, robust and thriving among those people of earth who have lost their way and have reclaimed this form of paganism at the risk of their eternal souls. I must tell you, I question whether one who subscribes to the...
  • ďHumans are too stupid to prevent climate changeĒ Lovelock

    James Lovelock knows of what he speaks: personal experience allows him to say that a lot of humans arenít that bright. But Lovelock forgets that while there are manyóhalf!ówho are below average on the IQ scale, it takes an academic to say something really stupid. Take the Gaia hypothesisónow elevated to ďtheoryĒóLovelockís creation. Life forms a complex web of interactions, Lovelock says. Has anyone in all of history ever disagreed with that? It is trivially true, and noticing it is not the least worthy of praise. Yet several grant-awarding agencies still gave Lovelock a hearty pat on the back after...

    Man-made carbon emissions: But it is bad news for the polar bears MAN-MADE carbon emissions are staving off a new ice age, says a leading environmental scientist. Climate-change expert Dr James Lovelock says the greenhouse gases that have warmed the planet are likely to prevent a big freeze that could last millions of years. In a talk at Londonís Science Museum Dr Lovelock said the balance of nature was in charge of the environment. He said: ďWeíre just fiddling around. It is worth thinking that what we are doing in creating all these carbon emissions, far from being something...
