Booker on climate change and evolution


I recently wrote about Dr Tim Ball’s essay about Velikovsky and climate sceptics. That reminds me of another great essay I read almost two years ago, by Christopher Booker. It was about the bicentenary of Charles Darwin, author of The Origin of Species and the inventor of the theory of evolution. Booker wrote:

What is fascinating about the Darwinians is their inability to accept just how much they do not know. Armoured in their certainty that they have all the answers when they so obviously don’t, neo-Darwinians such as Richard Dawkins rest their beliefs just as much on an unscientific leap of faith as the ‘Creationists’ they so fanatically affect to despise. It is revealing how they dismissively try to equate all those scientists who argue for 'intelligent design' with Biblical fundamentalists, as their only way to cope with questions they cannot answer.
Something strikingly similar has been taking place over the belief that the world is dangerously warming, due to the rise in man-made CO2. For a time the believers in this theory seemed to have the evidence on their side, as CO2 levels and temperatures rose in apparent harmony. But lately all sorts of evidence has been put forward by serious scientists to suggest that this theory is seriously flawed, not least the fact that recently falling temperatures were not predicted by any of those computer models on which the advocates of global warming rest their beliefs.
It becomes increasingly obvious that, like the Darwinians, the warming supporters are so convinced by the simplicity of their theory that they are unable to recognise how much they do not know - and like the Darwinians their response has been to become ever more fanatically intolerant of anyone who dares question their dogma. This might not matter so much if they hadn’t, on the basis of their faith, persuaded so many of the world’s politicians to propose measures which threaten to inflict a real economic disaster on the world.

A very astute observation indeed! Personally, I’m not a creationist, and I find it vexing, outrageous, nefarious and disgraceful that the fanatical AGW-cultists dare to compare us climate sceptics to Bible-thumping fundamentalists. However, I believe in keeping an open mind, and to be honest the science of origins is far from settled. Both sides have good points, and it would be best for science if everybody could admit that: it is never good for science to solidify into rigid dogma enforced by a cruel and oppressive inquisition. And I do enjoy thumping the Bible once in a while, and if anybody has a problem with that, then it is their problem and not mine, and they will surely burn in hell!
Have you noticed that evolution used to be about the progression from lower to higher forms of life, but nowadays, they define it as “any change in the frequency of alleles within a gene pool from one generation to the next”? In other words, any kind of change is evolution. If somebody with brown-haired parents is born with red hair (like my brother’s youngest child), it is “evolution”. Evolution has effectively become unfalsifiable. Does this sound familiar? “Global warming” and “climate change”? Need I say more? They used to call it “global warming” but since it is not warming anymore they have changed it to “climate change”. In addition, many evolutionists faked the data, cooked the books, boiled the spaghetti, like in the case of the infamous "Piltdown Man". That is just like Mann's "hide the decline". Indeed, the parallels are uncanny and legio!

  1. They changed it to 'climate change'? And who are they ... but non other than Frank Luntz. The fact that 'climate change' is Frank's term and invented by him is a matter of history and easily verified using the Internet. But you didn't look it up and you didn't know about recent history. This error is huge because it calls into question everything else you say in your piece.

    In fact, you piece is a troll unfortunately.

  2. co2hound: If I may defend the Baron for a moment, I have been reading this blog for a while and he is most certainly not a troll. His somber study of these issues is informed by a classical education that includes a minor in the art of macramé, and is second to none, except that of Chris Monckton, Third Viscount of Brenchley, and honorary Lord emeritus at large of Her Majesties Parliament.

  3. Couldn't agree with you more about keeping an open mind. Both in the creation/evilution debate and in the warming/no warming controversy it is always the "sceintists" who dogmatically reject alternative hypotheses that endanger their own "theoreis" and ignore any "evidence" against them. We can therefore safely assume these "theoreis" are false and completely missing the point. This means we shouldn't take these "sceintific" "theoreis" seriously and better ignore them completely. I would even say, since we know these "sceintists" are wrong there is no need even to look at the "evidence" they present to support their pet "theoreis"

  4. "Both in the creation/evolution debate and in the warming/no warming controversy" there IS another mostly ignored third theory for both that puts an END to BOTH arguments.

    For the CORRECT and THIRD creation/evolution argument SEE;

    People need to get out of species adolescence and become eager and ready for alien society because it's plain to see they( Jesus,Enki,EA plan to keep their promise of return to be our savior from the coming destruction.

    Once you understand Gods are an extraterrestrial race of beings and get past the primitive concept of "God" and understand why the Gods left all those carvings in stone was for those of us who are enlightened enough to read and understand them, as they cannot be altered, unlike the Bible.

    Yet there are those who still swear by the Bible, in any of its myriad versions, as the revealed word of their "God" have to ignore or deny the clear fact that the Old Testament was a skewed and forged theo-political rewrite of a far more ancient
    document, the Enuma Elish, dating from at least Sumeria, which was not theological at all.

    The Annunaki-Sumerian (gods?) are the same as the Greek/Roman and Egyptian, and some also in other cultures... just with different names. ie. Enki/Ea/Ptah, Ningishzidda/Thoth/Quetzalcoatl, Enlil/Yahweh.

    Once you read a bit on the subject you will soon come to realise that the Anunnaki were/are real flesh and blood individuals capable of prolonging their life-span indefinitely.

  5. For the CORRECT and THIRD warming/no warming controversy SEE;

    We are seeing history repeating it's self,AGAIN!

    We ARE in the SAME spiral arm as the end-Permian extinction….. AGAIN

    We are crossing the SAME thin magnetic disc of the Galactic Plane equator .....AGAIN

    We ARE experiencing the SAME increase in Volcanic activity as the end-Permian extinction…. AGAIN

    We ARE experiencing the SAME increase in Co2 as the end-Permian extinction ....AGAIN

    We ARE experiencing the SAME increase in OCEAN temperature just before the end-Permian extinction ...AGAIN

    http://tinyurl.com/2d5fwrz http://tinyurl.com/23dfm2n

    Just look at the Ice core records there HAS ALWAYS been a catastrophic disaster after NATURAL Co2 reaches around 400ppm. In the last 12 catastrophic disasters,there has been a correlation of;

    A SEISMIC Co2 rise=THIS TIME,YES.

    A spiral arm encounter,= THIS TIME,YES.

    A Galactic Equator encounter,= THIS TIME,YES.

    A magnetic reversal,= THIS TIME ““IS IMMINENT”“,SO YES.

    A deep ice age after,= TIME FRAME EVIDENCE AGREES,!! SO YES.

    An extinction event, = TIME FRAME EVIDENCE AGREES,!! SO YES.

    An encounter with a Photon Band =THIS TIME YES.

    A Harmonic convergence = THIS TIME YES.

    At the EXACT same position in space where there has two major extinction events, Cambrian and Permian Now join to that fact, this interglacial warm period is due to end circa 2012 and we just happen to be crossing the thin magnetic disc of the Galactic Plane circa 2012,plus a ““magnetic reversal imminent”” circa 2012 says National Geographic.

    The Oceans warming IS the source of the carbon dioxide rise.

    The SOURCE of the Oceans warming IS the INCREASED OUTPUT from 3 MILLION + VOLCANOES,BLACK SMOKERS,A HUGE INCREASED AREA OF HOT ROCK SURFACE AND GIGANTIC SUPER-HEATED HYDROTHERMAL VENTS OF BOILING WATER,JUST AS IAN PLIMER HAS STATED !!. JUST THE SAME AS IT HAS DONE IN EVERY PAST EPISODE JUST BEFORE ENTRY TO A >> ““DEEP ICE AGE”“<<

    Is increasing atmospheric co2 man made or natural? by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

    BUT,IF YOU >>>MAKE THE TIME<<< TO READ AND EXPLORE ALL MY LINKS YOU >>>WILL<<< SEE THERE IS LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL...IF YOU ACCEPT ENKI/JESUS AND BELIEVE,BEHAVE AS A CHRISTIAN DURING THE 7 YEAR TRIBULATION.

  7. superb stuff , everything you say is true, YOU ARE A TRUE HERO !. Science is bunk , we all know that its common sense that really makes sense and as one door opens another closes. Pinko subversive tree hugging commie rats are trying to take over the planet to form a galaxy spanning evil world empire with Al Gore as its titular head . It is fortunate that true patriots like the Baron , are here to show us the true path !

  8. My dear Baron. You are a true skeptickkk by giving us a place to put our censored ( by the mainstream) views that are just as well researched and documentated with full peer reviewed papers and lotsa evidense. Lobal swarming is really the by product of passing the middle line of galacktick longytyood, and 2012 coming soon. Its all in the Brible and the Enuman Leegue Elsheesh, and the Mahahaharahahohohahabaratatatt. Those ancient texts that are full of the wisdom of AnKulter

  9. There was once a time when I also deemed that we began to lose our direction cheap fifa 14 coins and become numb without too much affection in this material-flooding world. We were not sure whether the reason why we locked tightly our heart was to eliminate loneliness fifa 14 coins or to protect ourselves. We did it unconsciously with less and less emotion and smile. So someone said that I was awfully icy to others. Not until one day when I was stricken by a sense of gratitude cheap fifa 14 coins did I totally change myself.
