    They both require a lot of faith to believe.

    gotta love the idiots with no scientific training, let alone advance degrees and experience to know what they are talking about, calling something unbelievable or a myth. YOu know how dumb you people look when you do such things?

    I guess next time you are sick, you should go to an accountant, since education, training, and experience obviously doesn't mean anything to you. Just find some bogus website claiming its a myth, and believe that. And having some doubters in the field is normal for science, that doesn't mean its a scam or a myth,

    guess you don't understand my point of view, so you've tried to classify it into the narrow Olbermann-Hannity left-right world view, without which you simply don't have the mental capacity to understand issues

    both are being imposed on our schools by idiots who hate facts, but love to be brainwashed

    one side prefers to hand its mind to Pat Robertson, the other to Al Gore, but they're all zombies either way

    but when potentially conflicting data comes in, name calling skeptics rather than investigating further is not science, its politics

    we understand completely. You dont' want to believe in the facts, so just discredit actual science, with supporting evidence. It's typical though of people with no scientific background, science is complex and not for the faint at mind, so instead of dealing with it, its must easier to claim its a myth and a lie. THat people who spent their lives searching for the truth and using the scientific method are all just trying to scam us and make shit up is just so completely dumb. If you knew anything about science, you would no any sort of fudging of data and making shit up is repugnant, and those who do such things are caught and essentially banished from science. WE take the methods and honesty of the science very serious.

    All the while you benefit from all the scientific discoveries leading to the technology we have today. YOu are alive and survived childhood because of the scientific method making discoveries, but when it comes to something you don't want to believe, you just attempt to discredit by calling it a myth or making other simple minded claims. You guys are fools, and hold back society with such idiocy. the only people making shit up are people like you.

    You don't know what science is. The only people politicizing science are not the scientists themselves, but the conservatives. find a minor few critics, and believe they are right over all the other scientists. Skepticism is good in science, it makes scientists strive to prove their hypothesis, and further support their theories. But claiming something is a "myth" and "hoax" just shows ones disingenuous nature.
