World Nut Daily: Beyond parody

Joseph Farah of World Nut Daily writes:

I can certainly understand why neo-pagans like Al Gore believe, despite overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, man-made, catastrophic global warming is the gravest threat to the planet.

What I can’t understand is why people who claim to believe in the Bible as the inerrant, inspired Word of God do so.

“Global warming isn’t mentioned in the Bible, so it doesn’t exist.” Is this guy for real?

…God controls the world’s temperature, not man. God controls the climate, not man. God controls the earth’s “eco-system,” not man. God controls our environment, not man.

Like I said – beyond parody.

Ed Brayton hits the nail on the head:

Uh, Joe….the Bible doesn’t mention all kinds of things. Says nothing about airplanes, for instance, or computers. If those things actually existed, wouldn’t the Bible say something about them? Well no, Joe, not unless you’re a fucking moron.

  1. I can certainly understand why neo-pagans like Al Gore believe . . .

    Why does he claim that Gore is a “neo-pagan?” Because he doesn’t subscribe to Farah’s personal interpretation of Christianity? (Then again–what does it really matter? Maybe we ought to leave these faith-heads to their internecine squabbling over theological wankery.)

    Farah is demonstrating that he is far more interested in enforcing dogma than scientific accuracy. (Which makes sense–his mindless and uncritical approach to his religion treats the Bible as a science textbook anyway.)

  2. Ghouls…. Mad ghouls…

    Oh, and Sammy, hello again. Like the new wordpress layout.
