    Simple poll since so many libtards are claiming that conservatives are ignorant neanderthals who all replace science with their Bibles.

    Terms used to mean the following:
    Evolution: gradual change from one species to another. This does not include biogenesis which is a seperate theory.

    Global Warming is a reference to the theory that MOST if not ALL climate change on this planet is driven by human activity.

    Conservative: you self identify as conservative or do not no matter what someone else may think.

    What the hell, I'm bored.

    Yeah, conservative but not a right wing wack job.
    Global smarming- on the fence with this one. Really.
    Evolution- for sure. Creation was a one-off. All the ingredients were there.
    Now we're here.

    False premise, the theory states that man is having an effect, NOT "MOST if not ALL". FAIL!!!

    Hmmm...... Just what the hell does being either a conservative or liberal have to do with scientific evidence concerning global warming. Like evolution, the scientific evidence supporting the theory that adding GHGs to the atmosphere will result in the warming of the Earth is well beyond reasonable doubt. Were it not, the policy statements of virtually all the Scientific Societies, all of the National Academy of Sciences of the industrial nations, and all the major Universities would not be stating what they state, that AGW is real, and a clear danger to our civilization.

    One can flap yap all they want about a lack of scientific consensus, but there is an overwhelming scientific consensus on AGW. Not a single Scientific Society denies that AGW is not occurring. Not a singe National Academy of Science, not a single major university. That you will not accept that the scientific community considers AGW a proven fact hardly reflects on the scientific community, rather on the quality of your ability to process the data that has been given you by the scientists.

    Oh, bull. Hell, *I* think human activity has *some* effect, but not nearly enough to justify the draconian power grab that most nations are going for under the AGW banner.

    No, these people generally insist that human activity is the primary driving force and thus it is called anthropogenic global warming.

    No, it's not considered the primary driving force, just one of many. The part that's due to man is AGW, but that doesn't mean it outranks the sun or earth's orbit or the GHGs already in the atmosphere. It's just the realization that since GHGs keep the earth warmer than if they weren't there, adding more will inevitably lead to even warmer temps. It's simple logic. :2up:

    I think "significant effect" would be more in line with the AGW cult's claim.
    I'll buy that humans contribute to local conditions and did, 50 years ago, to a much greater extent, but these days, with the anti pollution measures taken since the early 60's, our effect on global climate is negligible.
    I'm on board with evolution, but see a master plan or maybe a guiding intelligence that I call God.

    I'll tip-toe out a bit.....

    Conservative

    Humans are but proverbial fleas on a dog. This planet has cooled and warmed on much grander scales through the ions without our minimal existence.

    Evolution was created but not across species.
