    If it turns out that there really is no hard evidence to support the A in AGW, wouldn't you want to know?

    I ask this because it seems to me that the AGW evangelists here have completely shut their minds off to even the slightest possibility that the A remains purely speculative and categorically dismiss every shred of information that challenges their previously reached conclusion. Particularly odd to me is these same posters seem to keep a fairly open mind on other issues. So why do they keep their minds locked shut on this issue when lord knows, there is some pretty damn good reasons surfacing to open it back up.

    Your premise sells evangelicals short.

    At least good faithful Christian fundies dropped the Bakkers and Jimmy Swaggert like hot potatoes, when it was discovered that they were frauds.

    Perhaps I should have said prophets of doom instead of evangelists. :D

    When it was "discovered"? Sheesh, I coulda told them that. Not everything takes a rocket scientist. Oh wait, they don't "believe" in science. Sorry, I forgot.

    Judging by the lighting, that looks like a shot from an episode of Star Trek, TOS. Though I can't put my finger on which one...
